4th Paroxysm At Etna’s Voragine Summit Crater In Progress In Italy
Lava fountaining from Etna’s Voragine
The 4th episode of lava fountaining has started at the Voragine summit crater.
Tremor and the sporadic (but sometimes relatively strong) strombolian explosions at the Voragine, which had started last evening, decreased in the morning. Shortly after, it began to increase again gradually, and this increase has strongly accelerated during the past 1-2 hours: activity moved from discrete explosions to continuous fountaining (and is at the moment still increasing).
