Only two weeks after the end of the July eruption, Piton de la Fournaise volcano started a new eruption on August 30, 11:35 local time.
A very soft "seismic crisis" of about 10 small events occurred at 10:00 in the morning. At 11:35 eruption tremor appeared very slowly and without any further seismicity and a summit eruption started on the south-east-south edge of Dolomieu crater.Scientists of the Reunion University which were on the summit could observe the beginning eruption.Two fissures opened, the first one within Dolomieu crater is very active and a large part of the crater floor was already covered by a lava flow in the afternoon. The second fissure one just outside of Dolomieu crater produced a lava flow on the east flank of Piton de la Fournaise, but ceased its activity in the afternoon. At present eruption tremor is still at a quite high level and a new eruption cone is forming within Dolomieu crater.
