Etna (Sicily, Italy): (16 Feb) The volcano remains restless with little changes in activity during the past weeks.
The mild to sometimes moderate strombolian activity continues to occur from the "saddle vent" between the old and new SE crater, at fluctuating levels during the past weeks.
In addition, glow is visible from Voragine summit crater, accompanied by strong degassing. Whether the current mild eruptive activity will eventually increase towards a paroxysm or something else (e.g. gradually dies down again) remains to be seen.
