Large explosion lava bubble at Etna's New SE crater this evening
Etna (Sicily, Italy): Strombolian activity at the NSEC ceased during the night, and the lava flows from the last paroxysm are no longer active today. Tremor has returned to low levels.
...11 Nov:
Intense strombolian activity continues at the New SE crater. When observed this afternoon and evening, mild to strong explosions have occurred at intervals of few seconds to minutes. Sometimes, they could be described as spattering, while at other times, large and noisy detonations caused by large bursting bubbles sent glowing lava bombs into circular paths several hundreds meters height and distance. An effusive vent remains weakly active at the upper eastern flank of the cone.
Tremor levels had rapidly decreased at the end of the fountaining of the paroxysm, but not completely dropped. (often at intervals

Ash fall has been reported from villages to the E/NE (Zafferana, Milo etc), where the plume is carried to by strong Libeccio winds. ... [more]
