New SE crater paroxysm #5 on 23 February 2013

The 5th paroxysm occurred 2 days after the preceding one and was exceptionally violent, with very tall lava fountains from the New SE crater.
Within the series of the 5 paroxysms between 19-23 February 2013, this one has been by far the most violent so far. Strong wind from the south carried cm-sized lapilli as far north as the city of Messina. This is a distance of about 50 kilometres! Pizzi Deneri, 3 kilometres north of the vent, became incandescent from massive amounts of volcanic fallout, making the view spectacular and unforgettable.
We present you videos taken by Turi Caggegi and our team member Marco Fulle:
