The latest data provided by the Copernicus satellite – from Saturday at 1:02 p.m. – indicates that there would be 1,074 buildings affected by the eruption of the volcano of Old Summit, 946 of them destroyed and 128 damaged.
There are also 33.2 kilometers of roads that have been disabled on the LP-2, LP-212, LP-211 and LP-213 roads, while the extension of the wash is already 397.5 hectares.

Likewise, yesterday the laundry broke the last irrigation connection that existed in the town of El Remo, which supplied water to some 600 hectares of banana trees. In the coming days, the installation of portable desalination plants and tankers will begin.
Nine early morning earthquakes
During the night, the 24-hour monitoring volcanic surveillance network of the National Geographic Institute (IGN) has located a total of nine earthquakes in the vicinity of the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano, three of them with magnitudes greater than 3 (mbLg).
The maximum magnitude recorded was 3.5 (mbLg) corresponding to the earthquake located northeast of the municipality of Fuencaliente at 04.16 hours. Most of the earthquakes were located between 11-14 km deep in the area where the swarm began on September 1.
Yesterday, about fifty earthquakes have been located, the largest of 3.6 mbLg, felt with intensity of III EMS in numerous centers of Los Llanos, El Paso, Breña Alta, Tazacorte, Villa de Mazo, Tijarafe, Breña Baja and Santa Cruz de La Palma
Seismicity continues to be located, mainly, close to the seismicity of the first days, at depths between 10 and 15 km. There are also earthquakes located at depths greater than 20 kilometers.
Sense earthquakes can occur that can cause small landslides in sloping areas. High-frequency tremor is recorded in some seismic stations near the lava delta.
The deformations show, at stations far from the eruptive center, a slight downward trend in the vertical component. Nearby stations show pulses possibly related to eruptive dynamics.
