Ash emission from Etna's New SE crater this morning (image: INGV Catania webcam)
The alert level for the volcano was raised to "orange", as an increase of volcanic tremor has been recorded. This could precede another upcoming phase of more vigorous activity, which remains to be seen, but it suggests that a new batch of magma could be rising inside the volcano's conduits. ...meer
