Strombolian activity at the volcano continues at generally low levels.
The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, Etneo Observatory reported that a stronger-than-usual explosion occurred at 21:09 local time on 11 September. Visibility of the explosive eruption was very limited due to dense clouds. Large ash emissions were seen rising from the crater area and slid down along of the Sciara del Fuoco.
Volcanic tremor increased temporarily to medium-high values, but after about 5 minutes later it decreased again to medium-low values.
Degassing activity continues at low-levels over the past 24 hours.
