Stromboli volcano (Italy): lava flow ends, normal strombolian activity continues at low levels

As a consequence, the lava flow ceased some time during the night to Saturday and is now no longer active. At the vents, the regular strombolian activity continues at low levels with no significant visible changes.
Friday's event in particular demonstrated that the volcano, or, at least as far as the configuration of the summit vents and their activity, is far from being in a stable condition and surprises and short-notice changes in eruptive behavior are always possible, maybe more so now than during much of the past years.

A short phase of elevated activity occurred at the volcano last night. A small surge of magma apparently resulted in a series of lava flows from the northern vents onto the upper Sciara del Fuoco, generating beautiful incandescent rockfalls on the steep slope. None of the flows reached more than about 100-200 m length and none remained active very long. ... read all
