Etna vulkaan huidige activiteit: sporadisch as uitstoot van SE krater

Large lava flow to the SW side Update Sun 01 Feb 23:43

More details start to emerge about the new eruptive phase. Strombolian activity from the SE crater accompanies important lava effusion, feeding an impressive lava flow.
The lava flow has been taking a path to the SW, passing the 2002 cones on their western side and descending already to approx. 2000 m or less altitude, a few km west of the provincial road to La Sapienza.

Strombolian eruptions and lava flow
Update Sun 01 Feb 19:32
The new eruptive phase continues. Dense cloud cover has prevented detailed observations, but from occasional clearings and other observations, it seems that the intense strombolian eruptions are going on from a vent between the old and New SE crater, feeding a lava flow, at least 2.5 km long onto the southwestern slope.
Tremor remains high.
