Map of the new lava flows from the 24 May breakouts
Kilauea (Hawai'i): Early in the morning of 24 May (at 06:50 local time), a sudden surge in lava supply caused the main lava tube carrying the lava underground away from Pu'u 'O'o to rupture. This resulted in two so-called surface lava breakouts located about 500 m N and NE from the cone, feeding two new large surface lava flows. ...more [read all]

Some explosions at Stromboli this morning and during the night, from 3 different vents
Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): The activity at the volcano has picked up recently and is now again at (fluctuating) moderate levels similar to what it has been during much of the past 10-15 years - extremely rewarding for those who climb it in the evening. ...more [read all]

Intense glow from Etna's Voragine where lava fountaining seems to have started
Etna (Sicily, Italy): (21 May) Activity at the Voragine has been steadily increasing during the evening and night so far - strombolian activity is probably now turning into lava fountaining: the 3rd paroxysm of the summit crater within less than 3 days - is about to occur. ...more [read all]

Lava flow from Etna's New SE crater this evening (Osservatorio Meteorologico Nunziata webcam)
Etna (Sicily, Italy): (18 May) The first eruption of Etna in 2016 has been rapidly changing, involving 3 of the 4 summit craters. After yesterday and partly today's strombolian activity from the North-East (and probably New SE) crater, a short, but violent phase of lava fountaining (paroxysm) occurred at the main summit vent, the Voragine. After this, the eruption has become dominantly effusive and is now producing a lava flow from a fissure vent on the lower eastern flank of the New SE crater. The lava flow, with one main channel and few secondary branches, is currently traveling into the Valle del Bove. ...more [read all]
