Two lava flows emerge at the moment in the summit area of the highest active volcano in Europe. The tremor of the internal magmatic ducts has reached medium-high values and is currently decreasing.

The phenomenon is accompanied by a Strombolian activity from the main craters, which however does not impact the Catania airport, which is fully operational.

“We are starting a new eruptive phase of Etna – explains the director of Catania Catania, Eugenio Privitera – which could end soon or last months. The phenomena are all confined to the summit area of the volcano and do not constitute a danger to inhabited centers and people, but it will be necessary to control the flow of tourists in the area for their safety”.
