Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity
Etna (Sicily, Italy): A long period of bad weather conditions prevented direct observation of Etna’s summit over the past weeks. Nonetheless during brief moments of visibility a faint glow from the Voragine could be observed, together with discontinuous ash emissions from the South East Crater. Since last night weak strombolian activity from the South East Crater has started and this has intensified during the day. Additionally, on the 19th of January there have been four seismic events at shallow depths on the Pernicana fault in the NE flank of the volcano.
