INGV reported that during 13-19 June gas emissions rose from Etna's Southeast Crater (SEC) and Bocca Nuova Crater (BN); the emissions from BN were dense and voluminous on 13 June and drifted SSW. Lava effusion from the vent located at about 2,700 m elevation, along the fissure that had opened on 29 May, had slowed by 13 June and stopped by that evening. Lava continued to erupt from a vent along the 7 June fissure, located at the base of the N wall of the Valle del Bove, advancing to 1,760 m elevation by 14 June.
Effusion ceased overnight during 15-16 June.
