Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion), activity update: lava emission diminishing, eruption stops
The eruption at Fournaise volcano seems to come to an end.
On late 9 April, no surface lava flows were visible and all lava from the vent is flowing in lava tunnels on the slope of the Grande Brulée. At 14h00 local time on 10 April, lava fountains ended and lava emission at the vents stopped, triggering scientist to announce the end of the eruption. In the evening, only small residual lava flows were observed, probably relating to drainage of the feeding system and the lava channels and tubes.
During the past days, further smaller collapses have continued to affect the walls of the summit crater. The area surrounding the summit is covered with a deposit of 5-7 cm of ash.
A large number of dead deep-water fish have been found floating on the heated water surrounding the lava sea entry. More than 30 different species have been counted by scientist, some of which seem to be unknown.
