Activity is medium-low at Stromboli volcano.
During a visit of a VolcanoDiscovery group on 12 November, 4 vents were observed active: two glowing vents on top of small spatter cones within the former central crater complex were weakly spattering, while a third vent was emitting impressive jets of gas with few glowing spatter, accompanied by extremely loud jet-engine like sounds. A single vent, also glowing, was active at the NE crater, erupting strombolian bursts every 10-30 minutes to up to about 100m height.
On a repeated visit tonight, with extremely strong SW wind, the same craters were active, but producing only very small and rare explosions.
