Activity at the volcano remains very high. Frequent and often strong strombolian eruptions occur from several active vents in the crater terrace.
The effusion of lava from the SW rim of the crater rim seems to have increased its activity during the past day, and feeds a lava flow that reaches ab out half way down the slope of the Sciara del Fuoco.
