Volcanic activity worldwide 21 Jun 2014: Piton de la Fournaise

Piton de la Fournaise (La Réunion): (21 Jun) A new eruption, the first after 3 1/2 years of repose, started at the volcano this morning at 01:35 local time, from a vent on the upper SE flank of the central crater (Dolomieu) cone.
The eruption followed a recent increase in seismic activity, although it still came as a surprise because this seismicity had been relatively weak and no other signs of an impending eruption had been detected (deformation, increase in gas emissions). First signs of unrest had been detected during around 9-13 June, followed by a pause in seismic activity. Another swarm occurred on 17 June with 170 quakes and over volcanic-tectonic-induced 380 rockfalls.
The alert level of the volcano was raised to 2 and access to the Enclos Fouqué is now closed to the public.
