Las Palma, that is part of the Canary Islands, was hit by both a 3.8 earthquake and another volcanic eruption overnight.
The popular tourist destination, located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of North Africa, has a population of 80,000 people.
The volcanic eruptions started on Sunday and the Daily Mail reports that so far 6,000 have been forced out of their homes and over 166 houses have been destroyed.
Images have emerged of burning villas and boiling water in swimming pools as molten lava flowed from a new vent that opened overnight.
There are concerns that the lava flow could hit the ocean sometime today and create a deadly cloud of hydrochloric acid.
There have also been reports of thousands of mini earthquakes on the island.
