The best place to stay near Mt Etna is no doubt the Corsaro hotel, located a few 100 m from the cable car station at La Sapienza cable car station on Etna South: Hotel Corsaro

Etna volcano update: Shallow earthquakes under Pernicana fault could herald new flank eruption?

Over the morning, surface activity at Etna's New Southeast Crater strongly decreased, and the lava flow seems no longer be active now. Tremor has dropped as well, but ash emissions and occasional explosions continue from several of the summit craters, including the Northeast.
Another significant sign of unrest appeared this morning in the form of small earthquakes, up to magnitude 3.6 and some felt by locals, at shallow depths on the Pernicana fault in the NE sector of the volcano.
Small fractures were reported to have appeared on the Mareneve road (unconfirmed report).
The Pernicana fault has in the past often acted as the "opener" of the NE rift zone, prone to flank eruptions (last so in Oct 2002). Could this time be similar, could the earthquakes be a precursor of another flank eruption ? Nobody can be sure, but for sure, these signs are at least a bit worrying.

Lava flow from Etna's New SE crater this morning
Dienstag, Dez 08, 2015
Lava fountaining from the pit crater on the upper New SE cone's flank continued all day yesterday and fed a lava flow with two branches, the main one headed to the east reaching quickly the Valle del Bove, a lesser one to the NE base of the cone. ... [mehr]

Sonntag, Dez 06, 2015
The activity at the New SE crater has been continuous all day and is still gradually increasing. A low lava fountain feeds a lava flow from the new pit crater. This flow occasionally generates small pyroclastic flows as parts of its front collapse on the steep slope. ... [mehr]

Lava fountain during Etna's 4th Voragine paroxysm
Samstag, Dez 05, 2015
The speed at which activity increases is truly impressive. Even from webcams located more or less downwind (i.e. receiving much ash blocking clear view), the lava fountain is now visible clearly. [mehr]
Lava fountain and ash plume from Voragine
Samstag, Dez 05, 2015
The 4th lava fountaining episode in less than 3 days has began at Etna's Voragine. Intermittent strombolian activity, elevated throughout the day since the end of last night's paroxysm, has now merged into sustained jets (fountains) of lava. An ash plume is again rising several kilometers. ... [mehr]
