The observatory Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) reported that elevated fumarolic activity in the Fossa summit crater has been detected today.

The activity is associated with increased level SO2 and CO2 emissions and temperature.

The seismic station recorded a small internal tremor related to near-continuous degassing over the past few weeks.

Based on the changes in the activity, the INGV raised the alert level for the volcano to “yellow”.
