Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Lava fountaining from the pit crater on the upper New SE cone’s flank continued all day yesterday and fed a lava flow with two branches, the main one headed to the east reaching quickly the Valle del Bove, a lesser one to the NE base of the cone. Activity today has decreased, but lava effusion seems to continue. This is likely only a pause in what is certainly one of Etna’s most interesting eruptive phases in recent years.
