"La Palma" is Spanish for "The Palma".

No, you're thinking of a laser guided flip-flop.

Wait... it's not Spanish for "The Palma"?

If La Palma is glowing red, try using lube to reduce friction.

Good luck everybody, Check your insurance policies.  Many policies have an exclusion for having your house destroyed by lava. On the Big Island people would sometimes get around that by placing a propane tank near thier house in the path of the lava so the house was burned down by an exploding propane tank and not the actual lava.

This is the place where the mayor (or governor?) recently said that it's safe for tourists to visit regardless of what's happening.

I think it's fairly obvious.  They allow drones there, so the place is ruined.

Wake me up when there's a 50m tsunami heading our way.

Isn't La Palma going to be the cause of the mega-tsunami that wipes out the East Coast?
It's already cracked & 100 cu km will slide into the Atlantic... kersplash!

Maybe it's some other island.

I'm 150 miles inland and at about 700ft elevation. The perfect location for popping corn.

No biggie. The Megatsunami thing was a musing that got a ton of headlines. Recent study has shown that the more likely 80 cubic km breaking loose will hit the east coast with only a 2m tsunami, so pretty much negligible.

..are you thinking of Dante's Peak?

Unlike the old rivers of lava that built up La Palma, kept it safe. Made it a place you'd be proud to get burnt to death in!

Well, 2 meters. So about 6 feet.

Two meter tsunami on top of a high tide nothing to sneeze about. Just saying...

Geez. Didn't these people watch the 1997 movie "Volcano?"  Tommy Lee Jones stopped the lava with K-rails.

Why, again, do people insist on building habitations next to an ACTIVE VOLCANO?

You'd think we'd have learned our lesson in 79 A.D...

A) "Near" is a relative term for something that can cover 30+ miles in ash, lava and molten shrapnel.

B) Volcanic ash makes some of the most fertile soil.
