Volcano Watch: Etna explosions from New SE crater and increasing tremors

Posted on February 9, 2012


Tremor continues to rise (now at 13), from the webcam image, it seems a lava flow is starting to issue from the SE fracture.
All indicators point towards we are having the 2nd paroxysm in 2012 during the next hours!
The volcanic tremor is now steeply rising (at 8) and vigorous strombolian activity can be seen on the various webcams, possibly a lava flow has started as well.

While strombolian activity continues from the New SE crater of Etna volcano, volcanic tremor has started to rise, suggesting a new paroxysm could be in the making in the next hours, although it is still early to be certain.
