Effusive (lavastromen) en mild explosief (strombolian) uitbarstingen. Zowel top en frequente flank uitbarstingen, de laatste lijken te worden die zich in clusters duurzame paar tot een paar tientallen jaren.

Etna volcano update: New lava flow from SEC - Phreatic explosion causes injuries

The strong strombolian activity from the SE crater continued all day yesterday and today. The lava flow from the summit vent has flowed on top of the lava flow from about 15 days ago and yesterday it had reached an altitude of 2800m.

Yesterday late in the evening a new lava flow started from a vent that has opened at the southern base of the SE crater. This lava flow descended slowly toward the southeast reaching the Belvedere at an elevation of 2700m.
This morning the contact of the hot lava with snow caused a phreatic explosion, ejecting fragmented rocks in all directions. Unfortunately several tourists, mountain guides and volcanologists were close to the front of the lava flow when this explosion happened. Several people sustained injuries due to falling rocks, but luckily nobody is in a bad condition. Also present was a BBC television crew that has recorded the moment of the explosion.

This afternoon at around 15:00 a dense pulsating ash column started from a summit vent of the SE crater. It is dispersed by the wind in westerly directions.

Tremor is fluctuating, but there's a slow overall descending trend.
