A new paroxysm has started at the New SE crater. Following weak strombolian activity during the past days, this afternoon, started to rise steeply this afternoon. At the time of this update, there are increasingly strong strombolian explosions or pulsating lava fountains at the New SE crater and an ash plume has started to rise. Bad weather inhibits good observations, but occasional views can be obtained occasionally.

Time-lapse video of Etna volcano's latest paroxysm (eruption with tall lava fountains) from the New SE crater on 28 November 2013. Images from Radiostudio7's webcam placed SSW of the crater near Monte Frumento Supino. The video ends while the eruption is at its peak and still increasing, but cloud cover becomes more dense and visibility reduced. The eruption produced a tall ash plume that triggered the temporary closure of Catania's Fontanarossa airport.
