The central crater vent of Stromboli in eruption (23 Oct 07)
During the recent tour "From Stromboli to Etna" we observed mild to moderate explosions from Stromboli volcano. The most active vent appears to be in the former central crater, with powerful explosions throwing glowing material up to 200m elevation above the crater and often outside on the N and NE flanks. Other vents in the eastern and western part of the crater erupt occasionally with loud bangs and loud hissing noises produced by strong gas jets.

Fuego volcano continues its moderate strombolian activity; INSIVUMEH reported frequent explosions such as on 10 October that produce ash plumes rising to to altitudes of 4-5 km (13,000-16,400 ft) a.s.l. and mostly drifiting N and NW.
The explosions are often accompanied by rumbling noises and jet-engine like sounds. Avalanches of collapsing spatter from the growing cone in the inner crater descend W into the Taniluyá and Santa Teresa ravines.
