Etna's SE crater, the youngest and in recent years most active of its 4 summit vents, is increasing its activity.
Since the ash emissions started in mid August, weak strombolian activity has been increasing gradually. The first incanescent ejecta were observed by INGV on 21 August. Over the past week, strombolian activity has become more and more common. On 31 August, an overflight confirmed that a new cinder cone is now growing within the depression in the eastern flank of the SEC. [mehr]

Etna is back erupting. Since 15 August 2007, the SE crater has been showing weak explosive activity from the vent in the collapse pit on the E falnk of the SE cone. The activity consits mainly of deep-seated strombolian explosions occurring at irregular intervals of several minutes or more, producing dark to brown ash plumes with some fresh material. [mehr]
