A moderately loud explosion noise was heard from the village of Stromboli, and even from the Scari area on the eastern side (opposite the active craters), red glow could be seen from behind the Pizzo ridge.
The seismic signal shows a strong signal of the event. Webcam images show significant amounts of glowing lava bombs were ejected onto the upper slopes of the Sciara del Fuoco.
The eruption was not extremely strong, but comes after weeks of generally very low activity. When we visited the volcano two weeks ago, eruptions were comparably small and only occurred at intervals of 20-30 minutes on average.
