Another paroxysm at Etna's New Southeast Crater, Italy

Another paroxysm at Etna's New Southeast Crater, Italy

Etna's New Southeast Crater began its 20th paroxysm of the year late on December 14. It ended at dawn of December 15, shortly after reaching its peak.

Although the eruption was relatively long, it was weaker than its spectacular previous paroxysm. Today's eruption produced only relatively low pulsating lava fountains with associated ash plumes and a small lava flow to the SE towards the Valle del Bove.

VolcanoDiscovery reported early morning that tremor has dropped sharply, but reduced strombolian explosions, ash emission and the effusion of the lava flow continued.
