It's big - yes.

As for the lava/magma being the 'runny type' - if it is, I'll have to watch out for my backyard there is a rivulet (old) that runs through here. I can't tell where she's running though as the whole mountain is red and it's still to dark out to get perspective.

We heard a week ago on the news (as I reported here) 'they' were expecting something 'big'. Silly me I thought they were wrong.

Ash and fallout still bad, size of fallout getting larger, her sounding off has not changed - one right after the other, and the ground is still shaking, just not as bad as before. Maybe she's calming?

Nope.

Silo you must be on the SE/Eastern side of Etna am I correct? going with what i'm seeing with the wind vectors carrying the eruptive debris and gaseous venting. If you are on the SE/Eastern side that lava flow would be headed in your general direction.

That thing that looks like an eye on the right? Just a bit north and east closer to the mountain.

EDIT TO ADD: Wait a sec, let me look at that map again, that might not be right. EDIT TO ADD AGAIN = Ok I was right but a little to the west not east.



That's the size that's raining down now, larger, more substantial, and She's really rocking the house harder now.

peace

Silo - Please, Please - RELOCATE! I know you must be excited/scared. Please, in case it gets worse - do not be stuck there. Bring your animals if you can. Start packing Bag Now and Go. Remember Supplies you will need. Water, Socks, Mask (use your bra - take them all with you, Study Shoes, Etc. You need to find a route to leave NOW!!! Internet problems all day in my area and I am on dial up which keeps giving out here - will try and find escape roots for you and area folks - Do Not Stay - Please!

I wish I had a way I could.

If I thought someone could hear it through Skype (which you should be able to) and could record it? U2U me and I'll give you my Skype info.

But no, sadly I've no way to record it myself.

peace

Can someone help me out here?

How to measure this = Standing with my arm outstretched and using my thumb and first finger in that classic measuring method? With one eye closed I rest my thumb on the top of Etna then measure up with my first finger. The lava exploding up into the sky is over two inches from thumb to forefinger.

Is there any way to judge that in miles high now? Or is that impossible? I'm trying to get an idea how high she's shooting up in the air.

peace and thanks in advance!

From what I'm hearing on other blogs the lava is flowing into an uninhabited 'precipice' formed by previous landslides and isn't threatening any populations as of yet.

Thank you so much for your advice. I wish I could tell you I'll take it, but, I wouldn't leave my animals for my life and there is no way to take them with me. I live in a tiny farming community and have no car. I'm not crying 'oh poor me' - just saying. I had to chuckle at the bra thing. A little levity in the situation I guess. Me? A bra? NAW!

WOW - she just really gave a HUGE BLOW!

Thank you again, you're a dear.

Eruption has abated somewhat, but far out the woods yet as tremors are still at the highest since this eruption event started. Etna cycling up for another burst of intense activity shortly it would seem.

Silo13, by looking at the map, you can see past lava flows. Also, by viewing the photos, can you tell if the lava is headed your way?

I completely understand your unwillingness to leave, we went through the same with our land and animals after our recent 7.1 earthquake and 7,000+ aftershocks since.... we're still here.
