Stromboli volcano (Italy): new lava flow on Sciara del Fuoco
lundi janv. 14, 2013 11:05 | AUTEUR : TOMPFEIFFER
The new lava flow on the upper Sciara del Fuoco this evening
Another collapse of parts of the northern crater rim occurred today around 14:30 local time. Lava continued to issue from the NE cone and forms a lava flow with currently 3 branches, one of which reaches about 400 m elevation. Glowing rockfalls reach the sea.
During the afternoon, small pyroclastic flows generated by material sliding down the Sciara could be seen.
Strong explosive eruptions from the main NE vent continue to occur at intervals of 30 minutes approximately.

Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy)
: During a larger explosion of the NE crater, part of the northern crater wall collapsed. The explosion and resulting rockfall caused a large ash and steam plume that drifted over the island and scared many of the inhabitants. ...

Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy)
: Activity continues to be elevated. Last night, the eastern lava over flow was weakly active at the outer flank of the NE cone. Strong glow over the summit, despite partially dense cloud cover, indicates that the magma column inside is high and ready to produce more lava flows. ...

Etna (Sicily, Italy)
: This night at around 1:00 am local time, eruptive activity, most likely strombolian eruptions from the eastern vent, resumed in the Bocca Nuova, accompanied by a rise in tremor. ...

Stromboli volcano (Italy)
: The magma column inside the NE vent system remains at very high levels with continuous, strong spattering from the hornito in the western end of the NE crater. Large fluid lava bubbles burst from the main vent at irregular intervals of 10-40 minutes, and throw bombs, visible from the village, to heights of several hundreds of meters. On 7 Jan, a small lava flow issued from an effusive vent through a breach in the northern outer flank of the SE crater cone and traveled about half way down the Sciara del Fuoco. ...
