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): another strong explosion on 1 Nov

Another unusually powerful explosion occurred at the volcano yesterday morning, similar (but not quite as strong) as the one from 23 Oct.
The eruption lasted about 3 minutes and showered the crater area with incandescent material, probably also reaching the public viewing area at Pizzo. There are no reports of injuries as presumably nobody was in the summit area at that time.
What is causing these so-far isolated strong explosions - in a period of generally only low to moderate activity otherwise - is unclear, but they should serve as a warning to everyone climbing the volcano these days: they are not predictable and chances are that other ones occur in the near future with no warning.
