Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:

Stromboli volcano (Italy): activity increases dramatically

The activity at the volcano has further increased this evening: several vents in the summit area are active at once, in particular the NE cluster of vents where a new cinder cone is growing and continuous lava spattering as well as larger strombolian explosions with plenty of red hot lava spatter ejected to probably more than 200 m height occur.
The volcano has already been in an elevated state of activity for several days, and an official warning had been issued a week ago. In addition, the summit area has been closed to the public due to increased risk.
It is obvious that currently, the magma column inside the conduits stands high, ready perhaps to produce an overflow in the near future!
