That pic and others on volcano discovery show new vents all over, on your side.
Is there a valley between you and the lady? How far away are you?
If the side facing you were to collapse from top down to the level of the new vents.
Are you far enough away? Is there room for that material between you and her?
Your video and others has shown that she is not made of anything solid just a giant pile of
lava boulders and ash.
~ WARNING ~
Following the most recent phases of activity dell 'Etna, this afternoon the Prefect Federico Maria Guia along with the Head of the National Department of Civil Protection convened a meeting which was attended by senior representatives of all Departments listed and the Department of Civil Protection, Province of Catania, Police, Fire Department , State Forestry Department and Institute of Volcanology in Catania, all to access the overall situation of the volcano.
It was considered appropriate to confirm the current ordinance that restricts access to parts of the volcano's summit elevations adding an additional ban on the entire Valle del Bove on the south- east as well as the path that branches off from the resort Fontanelle - Houses Fichera , hanging in the Municipality of Milos , located at an altitude of 1240 m , above sea level.
At the above locations were also set up special principals of supervision and control by the Police and the local Police .
Activity has remained more or less unchanged. The lava flows from the fissure vents on the eastern flank of the New SE crater continue to be weakly alimented and produce overlapping smaller flows. Most of them only reach only few hundred meters length, and rarely descend into the steeper western wall of Valle del Bove. As a result, most lava accumulates in the less steep area at the foot of the cone.
Weak intermittent strombolian activity continued at the summit vent. Tremor has risen a bit over the past 24 hours, but overall is low.
