New summit activity at Etna volcano, Italy
As our colleague Charles Rivière reports, some new activity from the summit craters occurred today at around 3pm local time,- probably from the SE crater which had shown minor, sporadic ash emissions in the past weeks already, of Etna . The activity could not be observed because of bad weather conditions, but was registered by the seismic network of the INGV (the Italian volcanology research council). Fall of black, fresh ash was observed to the SE of the volcano including the city of Catanaia.
