Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion): eruption continues with low effusion rate

The eruption continues with little variation. An aerial survey helped map the new fissure eruption and its lava flows. The vent is located about 750 m south of Château Fort and about 2.3 km to the north-east of Piton de Bert.
The lava effusion rate this time seems to be relatively low as the flows progress only slowly, and has been estimated to be between 3-8 cubic meters / second.
