MODIS data from the University of Hawaii's MODVOLC hot-spot monitoring tool (http://modis.higp.hawaii.edu) confirmed an extensive hot-spot (presumably lava flows) near Alu volcano, in the northern part of the Erta 'Ale range. Details are still sketchy and these observations are as yet unconfirmed from the ground.
