It's in Spanish not Catalan for those who read the language of Cervantes.

Lava flow has slowed, the worry is that it is building up to a big blow and seismic activity has been detected.

There could be magma displacement in the lower area of the Cumbre Vieja volcano prior to a new eruption that will affect La Palma again

11:22
According to experts, this type of behavior of the volcano would indicate that another eruption is to come in the next few hours on La Palma and that it could be even more violent

11:18
LA PALMA VOLCANO | From Radio Televisión Canaria they report that new seismic activity has been detected in La Palma minutes after the eruption ceased, this time in the Fuencaliente area

11:13
Despite this slowdown in the descent of the lava towards the sea, it is assumed that in the next few hours the wash will reach the Atlantic and a dangerous chemical reaction will take place on La Palma
 
Here is an informative graphic from the US Geological Survey website:

Well, the quiet spell seems over for now. Visually, it appears possibly worse now than at any time since the eruption began:

Edit: as I was posting that, the 'island' of the cone visible in the upper image was washed away. It seemed to be acting as a bulwark and now that it has gone, lava is moving outwards, towards the camera as it were.

That is fooking terrifying. Demonstrates just how insignificant humanity is in the face of Nature's raw power. Reminds me of the line from The Rocky Horror Picture Show,

"And crawling on the planet's face, some insects called the human race".

And does that make you Frankenfurter?
