Etna is getting hotter

After ash emissions stopped yesterday afternoon, the volcano has resumed its activity today. Indeed, on the thermal cam you can see that the area around the saddle vent is hot and glowing tephra is being extracted. Ash is caught by the strong wind, pressed down and transported towards the northeast. The tremor fluctuates strongly at the border to the “red area”. The LGS maintains the pre-warning level “orange”. It already indicated an increase in activity 3 days ago. Under the Valle del Bove the number of weak earthquakes increased slightly again. Earthquake activity below the summit crater is unremarkable.
