About 1,000 residents on the island of La Palma, Spain were allowed to return to their homes Monday. It's been nearly four months since they were forced to leave due to the three-month-long eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

Some residents like Carmen and her husband Jose Angel said they felt a sense of happiness when they opened the door to their home, but feelings were still mixed over some people having no home to return to. Due to damage from ash, some houses that remain standing are uninhabitable.

The mountain began to erupt on Sept. 19 and finally went silent Dec. 14, though the eruption was not declared over until Dec. 25. During its time pouring forth lava, about 1,219 hectares were covered and about 3,000 properties were destroyed, according to the final tally by emergency services.
