Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion): second phase of eruption ended

Sunday Oct 25, 2015 09:42 AM | DOOR: T

The lava flows from Piton de la Fournaise still active yesterday morning
The lava flows from Piton de la Fournaise still active yesterday morning
The latest (second) effusive phase of the eruption ended yesterday afternoon. After 15:00 local time, tremor became discontinuous and lava effusion ceased.
The short-lived, but quite intense re-activation of the eruption began last Thursday evening, after a break of 4 days in activity. During the evening, lava quickly filled the main cone again and produced a new lava flow that traveled more than 1 km to the SSE. By next morning, it had reached the western foot of Piton de Bert where it caused a bush fire that was still out of control yesterday afternoon and prevented ground access to the eruption site from Pas de Bellecombe.
Whether the eruption will enter another (third) phase of lava effusion in the near future, or now can be considered to have ended for good, is impossible to say.
