Piton de la Fournaise (La Réunion): (12 Jun) A new eruption started at the volcano yesterday morning. At least 4 eruptive fissures with lava fountaining opened on the SSE slope of the Dolomieu crater at around 06:35 local time.
A seismic crisis, heralding the rapid advance of magma towards the surface was registered at 06:03 local time, meaning that the eruption gave only about 30 minutes of final warning. However, elevated seismic activity and inflation during the past 2 weeks had preceded the eruption as precursor.
The lava fountains were reported to be initially about 30 m high, but bad weather prohibited detailed observations. Several lava flows began to travel downslope. Already in the afternoon, tremor started to decrease and had descended to one third of its initial value by early evening.
