Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion), eruption news: new brief eruption at Piton de la Fournaise volcano
For the third time in this year, Piton de la Fournaise volcano erupted again at 11 pm on 30 of March. Just as the last one on 18 February, the eruption only lasted for 9 hours.
The eruption had been preceded by increasing seismicity at the volcano since late March and about two hours of strong tremor immediately before a fissure vent opened in the southern part of the Enclos caldera.
Unlike after the brief eruption in February, this time, seismicity continues and is concentrated along a line ESE from the summit. A reactivation of the eruption in the near future is considered likely.
