Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion) activity update: unrest, eruption warning

Wednesday Apr 29, 2015 21:10 PM | DOOR: T
A new eruption could be on its way at the volcano.
A sharp increase in volcanic CO2 emissions, significant deformation of the Dolomieu crater, and a migration of earthquakes from deep to shallow (7 km) levels, as well as earthquakes near the surface itself that have appeared over the past weekend suggest new magma is on its rise to a possible new eruption, which would be the second in 2015.
The prefecture raised the alert to level 1 ("eruption likely") and closed access to the Enclos Fouqué this morning.

The volcano observatory considered two scenarios most likely:
- Magma has risen from a deep source and is now close to the surface, ready to produce a new eruption.
or
- Magma has risen from a deep source but stopped at approx. 2 km depth, but destabilizes pockets of older magma in shallower areas, which creates the observed seismic activity.

The next days will probably give an answer to what is happening.

The eruption continues without major changes. The volcano observatory OVPF reports low, but stable tremor levels. Webcam imagery from last night (before clouds obscure views) show that the eruption is mainly effusive with only weak explosive activity (weak spattering) at the vents. Lees alle
