Strombolian explosion at Etna's New SE crater this evening (Radiostudio7 webcam)
Strombolian activity began again today at the New SE crater. Accompanied by rising tremor, this activity is increasing at the moment.
Current tremor amplitude (ECPNZ station, INGV Catania)
The current pattern is very similar to many past episodes which often culminated in violent explosive (lava fountaining) and effusive (lava flow) paroxysms and could very well build up to a new one, maybe similar to the previous one during 1-2 Feb this year.

The new eruptive phase continues. Dense cloud cover has prevented detailed observations, but from occasional clearings and other observations, it seems that the intense strombolian eruptions are going on from a vent between the old and New SE crater, feeding a lava flow, at least 2.5 km long onto the southwestern slope. read all
