Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:
Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy): back to beautiful normal activity

Some explosions at Stromboli this morning and during the night, from 3 different ventsThe activity at the volcano has picked up recently and is now again at (fluctuating) moderate levels similar to what it has been during much of the past 10-15 years - extremely rewarding for those who climb it in the evening.
Apparently, the magma column inside the conduits has again risen and both the eastern, central and western vent are active and produce intermittent strombolian activity of various intensity.
A friend of ours described her visit on Saturday as follows:
"We arrived at the old rim on Sat 21 May around 20.45, and stayed for about 45 minutes. It was very windy but the plumes was not coming our way. We saw three active vents, the middle one showed almost continuous incandescence with every now and then some limited spray. In the time we were there, the vent on the left had two strombolian explosions, and the one on the right had one strombolian explosion."
