A 16th lava fountaining episode was almost expected last Sunday (21 Mar), if the volcano had followed the 2-2.5 day rhythm shown during nearly all previous events in the current series. Instead, activity had been rather calm - until now:

Starting from around 8pm this evening local time, the New SE crater started again to produce significant strombolian activity and volcanic tremor amplitude is currently rising.
These are the typical first signs of a new paroxysm that could be in the making in the next hours. Watch Etna live to see how this activity evolves!
