Eruptive fissure at Piton de la Fournaise volcano on 6 April (image: OVPF)
OVPF reported that eruption continues on the eastern flank. The seismic station records since 5 April 189 volcano-tectonic earthquakes
at approx. 2 km depth beneath the southeastern part of the Dolomieu crater. These earthquakes testify to the weakening of the environment, either by a circulation of fluid or the emptying of a reservoir, most certainly in connection with the feeding of the eruptive site and its renewed activity. A risk of collapse of the crater is not excluded. ...БОЛЬШЕ
