A strong explosion occurred at the volcano this afternoon at 16:04:40 local time. An ash plume of several hundred meters was produced that quickly dissipated.
Bombs were landing on a vast area around the crater terrace including the viewing area on Pizzo, but fortunately, it seems that no people were there at the time of the eruption.
It appears that there were no significant precursors to the event which illustrates that even during periods of relatively low activity, Stromboli volcano can be dangerous. There are no reports of damage or injuries.
