Etna vulcano
Complesso stratovulcano Currently about 3329 m (changing due to eruptive activity and collapse of its crater rims)
Sicily, Italy, 37.75°N / 14.99°E
Stato attuale: eruzione (4 di 5) Eruzioni del vulcano Etna:
Near continuously active; some major historic eruptions include 122 BC (large Plinian outbursts that created the small caldera of the "Cratere del Piano"), 1669 AD (devastating flank eruption that destroyed 15 villages and part of Catania), 1787 (Subplinian eruption and one of the most spectacular summit eruptions on record - lava fountains reportedly up to 3000 m high).
Eruptions since 1950 (f: flank / s: summit activity): 1950 (s), 1950-51(f), 1955 (s), 1956 (s), 1956 (f), 1957 (s),1960 (s), 1961 (s), 1964 (f), 1964 (s), 1966 (s), 1966-1971(s), 1968 (f), 1971(f), 1972-1973 (s), 1974 (f), 1974-1975 (s), 1975-1977 (f), 1977-1978 (s), 1978 (f), 1979(s), 1979 (f), 1980 (s), 1981 (s), 1981 (f),1982-1983 (s), 1983(f), 1984(s), 1985(s), 1985(f), 1986(s), 1986-1987 (f), 1987(s), 1988(s), 1989(s), 1989(f), 1990 (s), 1991-93(f), 1995(s), 1996(s), 1997 (s), 1998 (s), 1999 (s), 2000 (s), 2001(s), 2001 (f), 2002(s), 2002-03(f), 2004-2005 (f), 2006 (s), 2007 (s), 2008-2009 (f), 2010(s), 2011-2013(s), 2014-18, 2018(f), 2019 (s), 2020 (s)
Stile eruttivo tipico:
Attività quasi continua ai crateri sommitali con esplosioni di tipo stromboliano ed episodi periodici di fontane di lava associati a colate. Ad intervalli irregolari di anni (da pochi mesi a diversi decenni) avvengono eruzioni laterali che producono effusioni di lava spesso associate a moderata attività esplosiva.

The activity of the volcano continues at elevated levels due to ongoing strong strombolian activity from the New SE crater.
On 7 October at 06:35 local time INGV recorded strong strombolian eruption associated with scoria ejected from the crater and an ash plume that reached 15,000 ft (4,600 m) altitude. Volcanic ash is dispersed towards the east-southeast and causes moderate ash fall on the volcano's slopes.
A tremor has not shown significant variations.
The Aviation Color Code was raised to Red.
