Getting nervous. Well, I'm gaining a new respect for Her that's for sure, and, I can't say there are not times (mostly when it starts raining the
ash and rocks) that I don't get an oily feeling in my stomach, but fear? No.
She's made me shake though, lol, so hard my pics come out blurry! Does that count?
The seventh paroxysmal eruptive episode of Etna of this year took place, again at the active crater on the east flank of the Southeast Crater cone,
during the early morning of 25 July 2011. As during the preceding episodes, a lava flow was emitted into the direction of the Valle del Bove, and an
ash plume was blown east by the wind. A more detailed report will be posted here tomorrow, 26 July 2011.
That's the problem. No one really knows when She'll go on a killing spree or when She'll just put on a great show like she did this
morning. I don't pretend to know either - so - I just follow Her lead and see where She leads us.
I don't know enough about fault lines to know if the quake you reported is linked to Etna or not.
What I can say is the afternoon news (local Sicilian station) reported that Etna has 'possibly' created/made a new 'fracture' and vulcanologists
believe she will be increasing in her eruptions over the next few days.
I've got to find the website so I can link directly, but, that's the gist of it.
