Etna volcano updates and eruption news:
Etna volcano (Italy): strong eruption (Paroxsysm) on 12-13 Jan
Saturday Jan 15, 2011 20:54 PM |
A paroxysm occured at the at Etna volcano's SE crater on the evening of 12 Jan, producing ca. 3-500 m tall lava fountains and a long lava flow.
The eruption followed renewed, initially week strombolian activity from the collapse pit on the E side of the SE cone. This activity increased gradually during the evening of 12 Jan and turned into continuous fountaining between around 10pm and 11:45 pm. A lava flow from the same vent travelled east down into the Valle del Bove and reached an elevation of ca. 1630 m. Ash fall occured in a narrow sector to the SSW down to Sicily's south coast. Explosive activity ceased rapidly at the end of the eruption.
If Etna's past behaviour is taken as comparison, such as the series of lava fountains from the SE crater in 2000 and 2001, it seems likely that more such explosive phases could follow in the coming days or weeks.

Summit activity at Etna volcano seems to be resuming. ...
Thursday, Aug 26, 2010
A powerful explosion occured without warning at the Bocca Nuova summit crater of Etna volcano. The explosion was probably phreatic in origin and caused by a sudden release of gas and vapour trapped beneath a plug of collapse material that had been plugging the vents. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but a similar event in 1971 killed several people who were caught by surprise by this type of explosion. ...

It seems that the activity reported from 6 November was not strombolian activity but rather the formation of a new collapse pit on the E flank of SE crater, explosing hot gasses and rocks that produced the glow visible on the webcams. Bad weather conditions have hampered inspections on site, but eruptive tremor is absent. However, Etna volcano could erupt any time as measurements indicate that the magma level inside the conduits is high.
