For example, the lava river has divided that area. And in what is one of the most relevant news of the subject, is that the lava has reached the ocean at another point, forming two outcrops of lava in the ocean instead of a single point as before. The danger of toxic gases also continues due to the chemical reaction formed by the lava when touching the water. This vapor is extremely toxic and contains small crystals. At the beginning, the source of the gases was that of the crack 20, since it was the ice that reached the ocean. But now crack 22 also reached the ocean.
