A second volcanic eruption has begun on the island of LaPalma, Canary Islands, Atlantic Ocean, off the northwest coast of Africa. Cogote Mountain, the site of a smaller fissure decades ago, is now erupting.

The new eruption is separated from the ongoing eruption by one MILE, so this is not some new “vent” – it seems to be its own eruption:
Video of the new eruption site has been posted to social media by the Canary Islands government:
