Yesterday, there was stated an infrasound signal in the North East crater and an increase of the volcanic tremor amplitude. You were able to see some ash emission and intense degassing coming from the carter. In the zone of the so called Grotta del Gelo you could also hear explosion sounds. Today ...To be continued.

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.

New eruption of Mount Etna, a remarkable sight (see photos): the first time in nearly 3 months, our Etna announces itself again. The whole morning the activity has been going on and the volcanic tremor is gradually increasing. New spectacular highlights are expected to be seen in the next few hours.

December 29, 2014 at 17:45 a new eruption from Etna, the Southeast crater of produced fountains and lava flows and an eruption column that was pushed by strong winds to the east, leading to relapse of ash and lapilli in the inhabited Milo, Fornazzo, S. Alfio and Giarre.
The activity is concentrated in the area of the summit craters at an altitude of 2900 m, the presence of low clouds and fog did not allow to identify with certainty the source of the eruption.Read more
