Tremor signal during the latest eruption of Piton de la Fournaise volcano (image: OVPF)
The eruption which had started early on 11 June ended today around noon. It had thus lasted only little more than two days, one of the volcano's typical brief but (at least in the beginning) intense eruptions.

The eruption suddenly stopped on Sunday following a brief period of intense eruptive activity (apparently related to the unexpected opening of the new fissure as previously reported). The monitoring observatory has said there is no sign of renewal of activity, and that such dramatic terminations of eruptions are common.

The eruption at the volcano is continuing with no signs of ending soon. Since a few days, the so-far only modest, but stable lava effusion rate has increased.
