Piton de la Fournaise: No eruption upcoming

The seismic crisis started on July 3, 2020 at 07:20 local time and ended around 08:00 local time. This episode was accompanied by surface deformations which remained extremely weak and localized at the top of the Piton de la Fournaise. Since then, no resumption of seismic activity or deformation has been observed.
Several hours without any activity being observed are evidence of the deep stop of magma in the building.
Nevertheless, given the resumption of inflation observed since June 16, a medium-term eruption cannot be ruled out.
