Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): During the past night, activity showed a significant increase and produced a lava flow down the Sciara del Fuoco, reaching the sea.
It is not exactly clear when the increase occurred, but webcam imagery suggests that the lava flow began to travel downslope around 1-2 am local time. By about 06:30 local time, the lava flow had reached the sea. At around 08:30, residents and friends of ours on the island reported a stronger explosion.
