Etna volcano (Italy): second strong eruption in 2011
Воскресенье фев 20, 2011 00:10 |
A second paroxysmal eruption occured at Etna's SE crater on 18 February, 36 days after the previous one (12-13 January 2011). The eruption started around 3am and lasted 11 hours. It could not be well observed due to bad weather, but consisted of strong Strombolian activity and pulsating lava fountains, feeding a flow that superimposed itself on the path of the previous flow from January.
More detailed information is available from INGV Catania

A powerful explosion occured without warning at the Bocca Nuova summit crater of Etna volcano. The explosion was probably phreatic in origin and caused by a sudden release of gas and vapour trapped beneath a plug of collapse material that had been plugging the vents. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but a similar event in 1971 killed several people who were caught by surprise by this type of explosion. ...
