El Hierro Volcano Eruption Reaches the Surface

The volcano near the Canary Island of El Hierro is now only 70 metres away from the surface and is spewing magma 20 metres into the air.

The undersea volcano eruption is set to create a brand new island as the lava piles up on an underwater mountain in the Atlantic Ocean.

Geologists believe that new land could soon emerge from the sea, and islanders are already looking for a name for the new territory.
