Scientists observing the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma have recorded the first day where no earth tremors were recorded since the start of the eruption on September 19th.
Officials have cautiously welcomed the news, hinting that it may be a sign of the beginning of the end of the islands longest running recorded volcanic event.

Monitoring stations have also reported that the emission of lava have also come to a near stop, with the local emergency agency Pevolca stating that the volcano is showing signs of “exhaustion”.
Currently the only indicator of an active eruption is the high levels of sulfur dioxide currently being expelled.
Officials have said that once levels of gaseous discharge moves below 100 tonnes a day it would signal that the eruption is drawing to an end.
