Etna (Sicily, Italy): (5 Jul) Less than 3 days since the last paroxysm early morning last Friday, another similar eruption occurred yesterday afternoon (4 July 2021). During the afternoon, strombolian activity resumed at the SE Crater, quickly increased and produced a lava fountain from 17:25-19:00.
The activity also produced two lava overflows from the SW and NNE crater rims, the latter of which reached the upper part of the Valle del Bove.
After the cessation of lava fountaining, intermittent weak strombolian activity continued at the crater for a while before stopping as well.
