Piton de la Fournaise (La Réunion): The eruption on the volcano continues into its 3rd day. Differently from the last short-lived last July, it seems this time it is well-fed and much more intense: lava flows have already reached considerable distance and were only about 2 km away from the coastal road when volcanologists from the observatory (OVPF) could undertake an aerial survey earlier today.
On Sunday, two eruption fissures opened up on the eastern flank of Dolomieu crater near the edge to the Grandes Pentes, at 1700 and 1500 m altitude and 1400 m apart from each other. At the time of this morning's overflow, only the lower fissure was still active and several cinder cones already had formed along it.
Lava flows emerging from it formed several branches before joining into two major arms, which had reached a vegetated area downslope at ab out 2 m distance from the coastal road. Their fronts were slowing down here, but if the alimentation rate continues to be high, they might again reach and cross the road. This happened last time during the big eruption in 2007.
