Volcanic activity worldwide 9 Nov 2013: Etna

Explosion last night at 23:08 from Etna's New SE crater
Etna (Sicily, Italy): A relatively large explosion has occurred some minutes ago. Volcanic tremor still doesn't show a clear trend.
...9 Nov:
Very infrequent explosions (at least one) occurred during the night, and tremor has again picked up a slowly rising trend, but is far from conclusive at the moment whether and when a next paroxysm might occur. Strangely, many of the previous ones have occurred on Saturdays (as if to provide a special weekend show for the Catanese people)...
An explosion around shortly past 23:08 (LT) on the picture attached was relatively strong. Guides from Etna confirmed that some of the explosions during the past days threw bombs as far as the Torre del Filosofo area. Access to the area above 2500 m is currently limited.

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Explosions with ejection of incandescent material from the NSEC started again. Some relatively large explosions occurred at 11:51, 12:37, and 13:06 UTC. Tremor has been rising and an earthquake swarm occurred earlier at depths of 10-20 km beneath the SW flank. This could be a sign that the next paroxysm is not far away.
