The explosive eruption of the volcano continues.
Strombolian activity continues to take place from three of the North crater area's vents and two vents in the Central-South crater area.
Eruptions from N1 and N2 vents within the North crater occur at regular intervals of 3 to 6 per hour sending lapilli and lava bombs to an approx. height of 80-150 meters to the upper Sciara del Fuoco. The N2 vent occasionally generates a weak spattering.
Low-level explosions at the S2 vent within the Central-South crater occur at regular intervals of 1 to 5 per hour ejecting pyroclastic material less than 80 meters above the crater.
