A new Strombolian eruption started at Etna’s Southeast Crater at 18:40 UTC on August 13, 2023. The activity increased to lava fountaining over the next couple of hours.
Activity at Italy’s Etna volcano increased on May 6, 2023, after nearly 2 months of quiescence. The activity further increased on May 21, producing a new paroxysm and resulting in a temporary suspension of flight operations at Catania Airport.
Effusive eruption with active lava flow continues at Etna volcano, Italy since November 27, 2022.
A new eruptive fissure event opened at the northeastern base of Etna’s SE crater on November 27, 2022. The vent was first seen at around 17:00 UTC when persistent cloud coverage thinned.
Etna showed signs of increased unrest on November 15, 2022, forcing the Etna Volcano Observatory to raise the Aviation Color Code for the volcano from Green to Yellow. It was lowered back to Green at 10:20 UTC on November 16 after geophysical parameters returned to background levels.
Two new eruptive fissures have opened up at Etna volcano, Italy late June 7, 2022. Lava is being poorly fed and the flow has expanded only by a few tens of meters.
Two new effusive vents have opened up on the flank of Etna’s Southeast Crater on May 29, 2022. The effusive rate is currently low. The Aviation Color Code remains at Orange.
An eruptive fracture opened on the northern flank of Etna’s Southeast Crater on the evening of May 12, 2022, after series of ash emissions. This led to the production of a small lava flow whose front reached the northern base of the crater. The flow is still active and producing ash- and steam-rich plumes as of early Saturday morning, May 14.
A new paroxysmal eruptive episode started at Etna volcano, Italy at 11:27 UTC on February 21, 2022. This is the second paroxysm at Etna in 2022. Strong strombolian activity, with ash cloud moving toward SE started at the volcano at 11:15 UTC today, forcing Etna…
Strombolian activity at Etna's Southeast Crater resumed early February 10, 2022, and reached full paroxysmal phase by the end of the day, with lava fountains 500 – 600 m (1 600 – 2 000 feet) tall, lava flows to southwest and southeast, and eruptive column up to…
