The platform for people affected by the eruption of the Cumber Vega volcano 2021 will present, next Friday, the multidisciplinary “Cumber Vega” project that expects the construction of a new city on a total area of 400 thousand square meters, comprising 543 houses.
The project contemplates an open city plan with single-family homes, secluded, attached or lined, as well as a school, commercial area, sports facilities, health center and plaza with a church.
“We are certain that this project adapts as closely as possible to the needs and quality of life of most of those affected prior to the explosion, because we have not left behind our economic support,” explained the project’s promoter, architect Sergio Gonzalez-Garaba. The platform highlighted in a statement that two months after the eruption, “affected neighbors have not received any concrete proposals to build housing and basic infrastructure to meet their needs for a new home, as well as words of encouragement and happiness.”
However, the Volcanic Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan) reported a new lava flow from the volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma, descending at an approximate speed of 70 meters per hour between the Todoc and La Laguna mountains. This new influx coincides with a phase of great seismic activity, with nearly 200 earthquakes, one of which has a magnitude of 4.8, in the last day.
