In France, acid rains may pass over the weekend due to the eruption of a volcano on the Spanish island of Palma. This was told by the head of the meteorological service of the BFMTV channel Christophe Person.
According to him, in addition to the lava flow, the volcano emits a large amount of sulfur into the atmosphere, several tons per day. Gradually, this mass of sulfur dioxide will reach France.
“This will have corresponding consequences, since sulfur reacts with water vapor in the air, resulting in the formation of sulfuric acid, which causes acid rain. These are the rains that are already coming near France, and which, of course, will take place this weekend, ” Person warned.
The eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcanic ridge began on September 19. Before that, more than 25 thousand earthquakes occurred on the island of Palma in a week, as a result, several thousand people were evacuated, hundreds of houses were damaged.
