I can't see much, all cams are cloud. You can see a little on Cam 6. Last time this was where you could see the lava fountains.

It's getting VERY loud again - ground shaking. I still can't see. What is ineresting is my cats are all over themselves to get in the house. A first - probably a coincidence. I hope, lol.
I'll look forward to seeing the readings as you see them now!

*Eyes open*

WOW that was a BIG ONE! :O Etna says 'Hi' Tzavros!

Yes, that is how she is now. Coming up for the peek.



Lava is just starting to flow now.

Unreal. I've been outside like the last 30-40 minutes and it's been one long continual rumble. Like thunder that just keeps rolling. But - can I see Her? Nope! How ironic She's in my backyard but I had to come in to check the webcams. The sky is all nice and sunny - all accept exactly over Etna! SO, off to see what all this rumbling is about!

From Cam 1 Really good view at the moment

That should be it now. Webicoder activity is calming down. Lava should still flow for a while but very short final stage this time.

The ash falling is outrageous, but really fine - which almost makes it worse!
I've got a pic of the clouds and ash - but nothing from Etna - I'll post when I get it re-sized and cropped.

Great capture of the lava! Thank you for that. I still have to chuckle at going to the computer to 'see' Her. Hehehe.

Thank you!

Have a great Sunday.

God morning all.
Etna looks so pieceful this morning with her covering of snow. Looks like she would never cause trouble.
Report is expected later about the episode yesterday.

Just for info here is the report from the 8th.

Sixteenth paroxysmal eruptive episode from Etna’s New Southeast Crater
On the afternoon of 8 October 2011 the 16th paroxysmal eruptive episode of this year at the New Southeast has taken place. Early morning brought snow to Etna and cloud cover that made visual observation nearly impossible. This episode was brief but violently explosive. It generating an ash cloud that was blown east-northeast by the wind. Once more, eruptive vents opened both on the southeastern and northern flanks of the New SEC cone.
When visibility allowed weak Strombolian explosions could be seen at around 11.:00 GMT. By 13:30 lava started to overflow from the crater, as usual through the deep notch in its southeastern rim. It was after 14:45 that the weather became so bad as to block all view from the cameras. Because of this the usual course from Strombolian activity to sustained lava fountaining and ash emission could not be seen. This stage is always very audible and locals reported loud booming However dense ash and a vapor plume rose rapidly above the weather clouds to be pick up on some cameras. a lava flow descended the western slope of the Valle del Bove, following the same path as the previous lava flows.
The paroxysmal phase lasted little longer than 20 minutes and ended around 14:50 GMT; ash emission continued until about 17:45, when the volcanic tremor amplitude returned to levels similar to those preceding the paroxysmal episode, and the lava flow fronts appeared to stagnate
This paroxysm came little less than 10 days after the previous episode, and it was far shorter duration than any of its predecessors.

Is it usual for her to be so active? This was the 16th episode this year, so is she active often, with regards to 2010 and before? Or does she have periods of quietness where she lies sleeping for months of a couple of years to become active again? Volcanoes have always intrigued me, especially Etna!

She is indeed wonderful and one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity.
What is happening at the moment are Summit eruptions, highly explosive and spectacular. What you don’t need are flank eruptions which can occur down to a few hundred meters altitude. This is too close to the populated areas. Her eruption history would fill a book. It might be worth having a quick read on Wiki as it contains a lot of info and other links.
Another to watch is Stromboli. Always doing something. Stromboli link

I am sure Silo will come in with a few stories.

How wonderful when She wears her first white coat of the year - but very strange She's not putting out anything. Not a whiff of anything. That's a WOW for me. Infor to store in your records Tzavros!

Enjoy.

Yes, do mark it down. When she's doing NOTHING? That's when I get worried. Though worry might not be the right word I do keep my eyes open and pay more attention that's for sure. Especially so soon after an eruption.

Full moon tonight too? Oh! And I've two does ready to kindle! It's going to be a long interesting night. I"ll keep you posted if anything changes through the day also.

Hello All -

She's been pretty (and I use that word in all ways) 'active' these past few days - continually putting out steam, ash and smoke. I guess that means we wont be seeing any fireworks, but, it's still amazing to watch her 'slow burn'.



Best wishes to Tzavros and All Etna's followers.

peace
