Etna volcano (Italy), eruption update: lava still flowing
Both lava flows at Etna are still active, with little changes observed during the past days. The flow rates seem to be more or less constant, at an estimated 5-10 m3/s. The flow from the vent at 3050 m elevation forms a broad channel with fast moving lava on the slope of Bocca Nuova. The other flow inside Valle del Bove has crusted over in its upper parts, but several large skylights are still visible in the upper areas of the flow.
On the afternoon of 3 Nov, the SE crater was emitting frequent dense clouds of browish ash, but no strombolian activity could be observed.
