Stromboli volcano eruptions:
Persistant (near-constant) activity since at least 2-3000 years. Most recent effusive (lava flow) eruptions from Dec. 2002-July 2003, March 2007, Aug-Oct 2014.
Typical eruption style:
Small explosive (strombolian) eruptions, typically every 20-30 mins. Intermittently, ca. every 2-20 years, minor effusive eruptions (lava flows); on average 2-5 times per year larger explosions.

Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:

Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy) field report: mild strombolian activity

Sunday Oct 22, 2017 08:00 AM | BY: T

Moderately strong explosion from Stromboli's northern vent in the eastern crater section on the evening of 22 Oct 2017
Moderately strong explosion from Stromboli's northern vent in the eastern crater section on the evening of 22 Oct 2017
When observed yesterday evening during our ongoing tour to Italy's volcanoes, activity at the crater of the volcano was at low to moderate levels. Compared to June-July, the activity of the volcano had decreased a lot during the past months, but the configuration remained essentially the same.
We observed 4 active vents: the westernmost vent with sporadic (30-40 mins interval) mild eruptions rich in ash and only few incandescent bombs, the central vent with constant glow showing pulsating degassing (but no visible spattering), and the two large vents of the eastern crater.
Out of the latter, the northern one, forming a circular crater of approx. 20 m diameter, was the most active, with typical strombolian type eruptions every 5-20 minutes, reaching ejection heights of 50-100 m typically, but sometimes surpassing 150 m. The easternmost vent next to this one only erupted occasionally, at intervals of 20-60 minutes, ejecting incandescent scoria to 50-100 m.
