New etna eruption 12/24/18

eruzione bottoniera 2018

Today, 12/24/18 at 11:00, a system of fractures opened at the eastern base of the South-East crater in the direction of Valle del Bove, marked by a strong seismic activity. In the morning after the initial phase of emission of volcanic ash, the most intense activity is located at an altitude of about 2,600 meters, generating a “bottoniera” system with Strombolian activity and adjoining lava flow that currently flows into the valle del bove, during the persistent activity of the summit craters. The best way of our beloved Etna and of the Etna South Alpine Guide Group to wish you a Merry Christmas!
