Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion): alert level raised, eruption warning

Thursday Dec 04, 2014 10:01 AM | DOOR: T

A new eruption could be under way at the volcano. An increase in seismic activity, inflation of the volcanic edifice, and SO2 gas mixed into the degassing plume, typical for a fresh magma intrusion at shallow depth have been detected by the volcano observatory (OVPF).
The prefecture raised the alert for the volcano again to "Vigilance", after it had been lowered on 1 Dec only.
The changed status means that police, civil protection and other authorities are on standby to react quickly if an eruption occurs. Access to Enclos Fouque is not yet closed to public, but hikers must stay on marked trails.
