Volcanic tremor at Piton de la Fournaise during the past days as of yesterday evening (image: OVPF)
The eruption which had begun on 31 Jan still continues and shows no signs of weakening. On the contrary, the measured intensity of volcanic tremor (indicator of surface eruptive intensity) has been rising overall and is a high levels, the volcano observatory reported.
No earthquakes occurred yesterday under Piton de la Fournaise volcano, suggesting that magma flow from depth is unobstructed.
The observatory also confirms that the volcanic edifice still undergoes inflation, suggesting that magma supply from depth continues (which likely means that the eruption is far from over).

Over the past days, lava fountaining activity shifted from originally 4 or more active vents along the fissure to the northernmost vent where a cinder cone is forming and the main lava flow is emerging. ...
