Over the last few weeks weeks, the strombolian activity inside the Voragine crater, one of the four summit craters of Etna, lasted without relevant changes.
The activity became noticeable by its intense explosions and changeable frequency, with larger red-hot lava ejections, sometimes accompanied by minor amounts of volcanic ash, in some cases, the chunks have been thrown more than 10 meters above the crater edge.
Since yesterday afternoon, the eruptive activity in the Voragine crater has intensified.
