The volcano continues to produce spectacular strombolian-type explosions involving several of its summit craters.

Protagonist of this activity remains the New SE crater with two active vents, followed by less-intense activity at the Voragine and occasionally Bocca Nuova central craters.
At the same time, micro-seismic activity remains elevated. A small swarm of magnitudes at shallow depth beneath the summit region has been detected during the past 24 hours. So far, there have been 15 quakes of magnitudes up to 2.1.
Volcanic tremor stays at high levels, but shows no clear trend. The current activity of Etna seems to be rather stable.

During the night, volcanic tremor descended a bit (although remains high) and the strombolian activity concentrated at the New SE crater with occasional bursts also from Voragine central crater decreased as well. Read all
