Is the falling ash constant, or does it lull (with the wind direction, the extent of the current plume) and then pick up again when an "event" occurs. And does the town have a warning siren that goes off if there is a huge blast? Thanks again.

Thanks for the questions - It’s keeping me busy while I’m a little ragged. She’s still erupting and making a lot a noise and I can’t see her. Fret fret...

Back on questions!

Some of the ash ‘lulls’ but the ‘chunks’? Though they are light - they fall fast and HARD! It really hurts to get caught in it.

And yes, the towns have sirens but in 15 years and some pretty outrageous eruptions I’ve never heard one.

I’m sure (or I’d like to think so) if the flow was going to change in this direction they’d let us know - but - this is Sicily. Things don’t always ‘work right’ here.

peace

Hi Silo
Guess who posted on the wrong thread this morning
Posted on the old Eta thread. Never mind on the correct one now.
Keep well and safe. I am talking to Turi at the moment. Data unavailable at this minute.

She's coming down from it again now. This is 3 in the last 36 hours.

Per la mia terra:

"Tutto ciò che la natura ha di grande,
tutto ciò che ha di piacevole,
tutto ciò che ha di terribile,
si può paragonare all'Etna
e l'Etna non si può paragonare a nulla"
(D. Vivant Denon “Voyage en Sicile”)

It's been really bad the last couple of hours - really loud.
No ash falling this way - but who knows with the cloud cover. She sure has been vocal though - bad.
I've not seen anything on web cams it's cloudy everywhere.
It's wait and see!
Thanks again - glad you're here - it's not 'home' without you!

peace

Well I was just silly posting on a old thread
I am always lurking around. Spoken to Turi and the others. She is being very naughty at the moment and needs watching for a while. This time it looks spectacular but only a big show which is a relief. She will continue to smoke for a while though.

For those asking about 'damage' from Etna's ash?

Here's some...


As you can see some of the tender leafed vegetables are already yellow and wilted just from having the ash on the leaves for a day.

lettuce



cauliflower



spinach



'grace' rose

Understatement! LOL!

She is calming down though now. I hope it will clear up a bit for more pictures.

Before I forget - what's the link you use showing the earth shake activity graph? I had the link and somehow went fumble fingers cut pasting it and it didn't work. My bad not yours!

Thanks for keeping your ear to the ground for us!

Thank you for the photos.
How high is the ash cloud?
At the moment, there is going to be an EAST wind and I'm living in France so we might get some effects here. Also, with recent volcanic activity over the past 5 or 6 years, we are now getting much more cloud cover and colder winters, plus cool damp summers. Readers should check out "1816 - the year without a summer' : that was caused by a volcanic eruption, albeit a small one.

I hope she stays calm! It's amazing you've been so calm!

That photograph of the rose is particularly beautiful. I bet the spinach is still edible- it's such a tough plant!

So pretty much if this thing blows, it's lights out for planet earth for at least a few years, right?

Etna is not the supervolcano in the area, your thinking of another volcano.

So you can grow stuff all the year huh? It's not that bad.
It's February and there's nothing but dead snow around me.
I can imagine me in such groovy conditions. No wonder people can't help to live there.

Great stuff!!

Can you make a video? You say it's very loud and quite frankly I'm curious what that sounds like.

Mount Etna's Dramatic New Eruption


Italy's Mount Etna sent lava and gas shooting toward the stars early this morning (Feb. 19), the first big eruption for the volcano in 2013.
Discovery

Nice article and video at the above link.


Mount Etna, one of the world's most active volcanoes, had emitted signs of an imminent paroxysm in recent weeks. On Jan. 22, lava and strong flashes in the volcano's New Southeast Crater were clearly visible from the Sicilian foothills; these often herald a new paroxysm: short, violent eruptive bursts.

Nice blurb that.



Dorschfeldt said he knew Mount Etna's recent signals could precede new activity. "[I've] followed the activity of Etna for many years, and with time you learn to know it as if it were your friend," he said in an email interview. "Following it constantly learn to be a keen observer and a minor change can lead to something important," he told OurAmazingPlanet.

I'll see if I can get the video from Dorschfeldt to post.


The tallest volcano in Europe, Mount Etna is almost constantly spewing gas or lava. Its Bocca Nuova crater also erupted earlier this year, from Jan. 10 to Jan. 20. In 2011, Etna's violent bursts were spotted from space.

I did take a video of the 'sound' - but I didn't post it (or upload it to You Tube) because there was nothing to see! All gray clouds - but a lot of sound.

I'll upload it anyway and post it.
