Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): Yesterday's lava flow was only short-lived. The overflow from the crater terrace over the northeastern crater rim stopped in the evening. Volcanic activity (strombolian explosions) remains elevated as the magma continues to stand high in the conduits.
The current situation of the volcano resembles the one from January 2013 when lava frequently over-spilled the crater rims, producing numerous smaller and larger lava flows on the upper Sciara del Fuoco.

Erta Ale (Danakil depression, Ethiopia): (16 Dec) Our Danakil expedition organiser and tour guide Enku has returned from a short visit to Erta Ale and informed us about both the security situation on the volcano as its activity at the summit.
Regarding the tragic incident that occurred on Sunday 3 December, he learned from his conversations with colleagues and local authorities that the German tourist was identified as Walter Roepert, age 63, and died on the scene while his translator got badly injured and is currently still being treated in Mekele hospital. The incident happened near the Eritrean Boarder where the two men were walking in a misdirected path that took them away from the rest of their large group. The Ethiopian authorities arrested some of the suspected police men and the armed Afar guides who might have opened fire when they mistook the two men as a potential threat. This tragic accident shows that despite the fact that there was no organised attack in the region since January 2012, the armed guards and local policemen are taking their duty seriously and tensions remain high, which is why it is so important to visit this area with an experienced expedition leader and trusted local guides.
