Etna (Sicily, Italy): The volcano has been relatively calm for more than 4.5 days now since the latest paroxysm late Thursday evening. This marks the longest so-far interval in the record-breaking series of more than than 40 lava fountaining episodes that had started on 19 May this year.
The only activity has been in the form of intermittent small and mostly passive ash emissions from the New SE crater's summit vent.
Whether the series of paroxysms is over for now or whether the interval is just going to be much longer until a next one occurs is impossible to predict.
