Style éruptif tipique:
Effusive (coulée de lave et fontaine de lave) et explosive avec des éruptions modérées stromboliennes et parfois phréatomagmatiques. Les deux types d’activités éruptives ont lieu fréquemment au sommet et sur ses flancs. Ses éruptions latérales au niveau des flancs, semblent se regrouper sur des laps de temps d’environs quelques dizaines d’années

After a few months of showing a little activity yesterday Etna erupted again.
At around 18:00 the volcanic tremor sharply increased, signaling the start of large strombolian activity from a new vent that has opened between the old and new cone of the After about half an hour a small lava flow started from this new vent.
The direction of the lava flow is towards the southwest and at 11:00 this morning it had flowed down slowly to an elevation of about 2850m ASL.

Ash fall has been reported from villages to the E/NE (Linguaglossa, Zafferana etc). The webcams show that strombolian explosions are still occuring, the lava flow also appears not to have stopped and the tremor remains high.
