After an intense day of bad weather, the clouds part in the evening revealing a surprise that the Etna volcano has given to its population: a bright red glow at the foot of the summit craters. A new fracture which, as confirmed by the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, opened close to the other fractures already existing since last June. The official press release reads as follows:
“The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, Etna Observatory, communicates that starting from 17.00 UTC the video surveillance network, when the cloud cover that insists on the volcano has thinned out, highlighted the opening of an effusive vent at the north base -east of the SE Crater, at an altitude of about 2800 m a.s.l., from which a small lava flow is emitted and slowly advances in the direction of the desert Valle del Leone.
The volcanic tremor in the last few hours does not show particular variations compared to the average trend recorded in the last week.
The currently available signals from strain monitoring networks show no major changes in the last few hours.”
As always, the next few hours will reveal whether it is just an effusive episode or if some more intense phenomenon is brewing. THE PHOTO IS BY FABRIZIO ZUCCARELLO
