La Palma volcano spews lava, toxic ash for fifth day as thousands flee


Lava and toxic ash shot into the sky as the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish Island of La Palma erupted for the fifth day, sending a wall of lava towards the coast. Since the eruption began, at least 150 homes have been destroyed as authorities seek shelter for thousands of people forced to flee.
