Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): The eruptive activity has remains more or less unchanged: the lava flow is still active while sporadic explosive activity continues from the summit vents. As lava output rates from the 650 m vent fluctuate, the front of the lava flow, located in the central part of the Sciara del Fuoco since 6 Sep, advances and retreats in the lower part of the Sciara, sometimes almost reaching the sea. ...more [read all]
The death toll from Saturday's powerful, and deadly explosion of the volcano has now climbed to 48, press reports. The eruption was a sudden, unexpected (and unpredictable) phreatic explosion, i.e. caused by sudden evaporation of overheated water in the hydrothermal system of the volcano. ...more [read all]

No significant changes have occurred during the past weeks. The volcano's activity has been characterized by constant degassing and occasional small explosions with ash plumes up to 1-2 km height. Crater glow is visible at night from the summit.
Activity remains mainly effusive and the viscous lava flow on the SE side of the dome continues to advance slowly through the Nima 1 ravine. ...more
The volcano's activity has been fairly stable over the past weeks. Mild to moderate strombolian explosions eject abundant incandescent material to up to 150 m height and produce ash plumes rising up to approx. 800 m. ...more [read all]
Explosive activity continues at the volcano. An ash plume rising to 7,000 ft (2.1 km) was reported yesterday evening extending 40 km to the NE (Darwin VAAC).

The volcano continues to slowly extrude viscous lava feeding the lava lobe on its southeastern flank. Occasional rockfalls, caused by instabilities on the steeper upper parts of the lava flows, continue to occur from time to time and represent a major hazard: Two larger ones occurred yesterday and produced pyroclastic flows that traveled 3.5 km distance to the southeast. ...more
