Current view of Etna (INGV webcam)
Etna (Sicily, Italy): At the surface, Etna remains calm. The current seismic signal and tremor values at the moment don't suggest a new paroxysm from the New SE crater is be expected very soon (although some paroxysms have shown build-up phases of less than a few hours only). ...more [read all]

Depth vs time of today's quakes under El Hierro
Hekla (Iceland): The Icelandic Meteorological Office has informed authorities about unusual seismicity at Hekla volcano, which could be a precursor to a new eruption, and increased the volcanic alert level to yellow. Monitoring of the volcano will be intensified, as Hekla is not only one of the most active, but also one of the potentially most hazardous volcanoes of the country. The last eruption was in March 2000. On average, the volcano has been erupting about every 10 years, and it would statistically seen be due for a new one. ...more [read all]

Current seismic signal (IGN)
El Hierro (Canary Islands, Spain): The earthquake swarm continues with little changes. Most epicenters have remained in an area at about 15-17 km depth a few km NW off the western tip of the island. Volcanic tremor, suggesting magma movements, is continuous with strong pulses every few hours. ...more [read all]

Webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli with dust from rockfalls on the Sciara (INGV)
Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): An increase in activity has occurred today. Lava overspills wide area of the rims of the NE crater, causing lava overflows and numerous rockfalls descending down the Sciara del Fuoco. ...more [read all]

Map of today's earthquakes at El Hierro
El Hierro (Canary Islands, Spain): Earthquakes and tremor have continued through the day, and continued to migrate a bit to the NW off the NW tip of the island. So far, 62 quakes above magnitude 2 have been recorded today. ...more [read all]
