A new lava flow has started to descend on the Sciara del Fuoco since this morning, INGV Catania reported:
"... from about 07:23h UTC (09:23 local time), the surveillance cameras show a lava overflow from the northern crater area on the crater terrace of Stromboli. Incandescent blocks detaching from the lava flow front are rolling down the Sciara del Fuoco."
The activity of the volcano has been again relatively high during the past two weeks, characterized by frequent explosions. The current lava flow, caused by yet another surge of magma that has risen in the conduit, is probably similar to numerous such episodes that have occurred at the volcano during the past months.
