Solid magma from the lava of Cumbre Vieja flowing into the Atlantic Ocean has formed a delta more than 500 meters long.

Lava deltas are formed by hardening of lava on contact with water, where cooling and destruction take place and these parts settle to the sea floor and form a heterogeneous surface.

On Tuesday, the Council of Ministers declared the island of La Palma a disaster area, and launched a package of economic and social assistance, which included a value of 10.5 million euros for families who lost their homes.
