Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy): new lava flow into the sea
Tuesday Aug 02, 2011 10:50 AM |
Lava flow on Stromboli volcano in March 2007.A new lava flow eruption at Stromboli volcano has started today. The webcam of INGV suggests that the vent is the NE crater which seems to have overflowed and is feeding a flow down over the 2003 lava plateau and the Sciara del Fuoco and has reached the sea already.
This new eruption is not entirely surprising given the unusally high level of activity in the recent time, when lava seemed to be high up inside the conduit.
The last lava flow on the Sciara del Fuoco was in March 2007.
