Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:

Stromboli volcano (Italy): access to summit area reopened!

Thursday Aug 09, 2007 07:40 AM | BY: TOM PFEIFFER

As our colleague Andrea Ercolani reports from Stromboli, access to the summit area of Stromboli has been reopened for guided tours under certain restrictions. In brief, small groups accompanied with authorized guides can now reach the ridge east of the crater terrace between 750 and around 850 m elevation where a few shelters are located, but the maximum stay is now limited to 30 minutes. Access to the Pizzo summit itself is limited to the time necessary for passing along the trail.

On 15 March at 21.37 local time, a powerful explosion occurred from the summit craters of Stromboli, similar but much weaker than the event on 5 April 2003. Incandescent bombs were thrown onto the flanks of the volcano and created small bushfires. Ash fell on the inhabitated centers of the island, but nobody was killed or injured during the eruption.The monitoring network registered a slightly increased flux of lava from the 400 m vent immediately prior to the explosion. As a security measure, access to the volcano has been reduced frm 400 m to 290 m elevation. ... read all
