New Etna eruption early this morning

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A new eruption started overnight on the Etna in Sicily, at around 3 am local time. A small effusive fissure opened on the south-south-eastern base of the New SE crater and generated a small lava flow which is still active during the day of Thursday.

Another lava flow originated from a vent on the SE side on the same cone, near the area where the eruption in Dec 2018 had started.

Seismic activity started to rise last evening, peaked around midnight, then decreased a bit, but has been more or less stable since.
