The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, Etneo Observatory (INGV) reported that a vigorous lava spattering was seen from the northern sector of the crater terrace starting about 16:50 local time producing incandescent avalanches.
Accumulated glowing lava blocks detached from it and descended on the Sciara del Fuoco to the shore.
At 18:30 local time, a small lava flow was being observed at the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco.
A typical precursor has been detected prior to the eruption when a moderate rise of volcanic tremor at 16:40 local time indicated rapid magma flux towards the surface.
At 22:25 local time, the activity returned back to medium-low levels and the effusive eruption ceased.

Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy): intense lava spattering phases and very frequent strombolian activity
The volcano has been quite active recently, with an increase of explosions from its several active vents, clustered in the northern (N) and central-southern (CS) sectors of the current crater terrace. ... Read all

INGV reported that during 15-28 November activity at Stromboli was characterized by ongoing explosive activity from five vents in Area N (North Crater area) and four vents in Area C-S (South-Central Crater area). Explosions from Area N vents (N1 and N2) averaged 6-17 events per hour; explosions from two vents in the N1 vent ejected lapilli and bombs 80 m high and explosions at three N2 vents ejected material 80-150 m high. Spattering at N2 was sometimes intense. ... Read all
