Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:

Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy) activity update

Saturday Apr 20, 2013 07:56 AM | BY: T

Activity remains elevated, but the new lava flow is no longer much alimented at the moment.
INGV Catania corrected initial reports in that the lava flow front had actually NOT reached the sea during the night 17-18 April, but only about half way. Most likely, observers had confused glowing blocks detaching from the flow and descending to the sea with an actual coherent lava flow.

The lava flow continues to be alimented, but effusion rate has apparently dropped and only the upper portion of the flow seems currently active. The seismic signal shows strong eruption tremor and continuous rockfall signals. [more]
