Due to elevated emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) from ground and finding dead animals, a small number of families has been evacuated from the village as reported volcanologist Marco Pistolesi on his twitter account.

The volcano observatory INGV raised the alert level for the volcano to “yellow” about two weeks ago, as increase of volcanic tremor and elevated fumarolic activity has been recorded.
