Etna eruption of 27 July 2019

On the 27th of July in the early hours of the morning there was a sudden increase in the amplitude of the volcanic tremor with strong degassing which in one pair produced a new eruptive vent from the base of the southern flank of the New South East Crater. The explosive activity has formed a dense, ash-rich gaseous plume that has dispersed at about 4500 meters above sea level.

The eruptive fissure has generated a lava flow that expands towards the south-west and south, in the area between Monte Frumento Supino and the Barbagallo Craters (eruption 2002/2003).
