Vulcano volcano (Aeolian Islands, Italy) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 13 October-19 October 2021 (New Activity / Unrest)
INGV continued to monitor elevated activity at Vulcano during 12-19 October. Scientists collected temperature, water chemistry, and gas-emissions data from four fumarolic vents located inside La Fossa Crater near the rim and from one vent near the beach. According to news articles, elevated levels of carbon dioxide impacted nearby residents in Porto Levante causing a few families to leave their homes on 13 October.
