Etna Volcano Erupts

Watch the Video Here How Etna Volcano Erupts

Below you may watch the video of how Etna volcano erupts. The date of the eruption is on 24 December 2018 starting around noon 17:00 local time.

Seismic activity at Etna is very important. The largest quake today so far has been a magnitude 4 quake at 2 km depth, at 13:09 local time, and widely felt around in the area. It was most certainly associated with the opening of the new eruptive fissure below the SE crater.

Currently, a large lava flow is running into the upper Valle del Bove from a new fissure vent at the southeastern feet of the New SE crater, near the former Belvedere area.

If you follow our website, you should absolutely read about the Etna volcano. It is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes from the Top 10 Dangerous Volcanoes.

According to Forcetoknow.comMount Etna is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy. It lies above the convergent plate margin between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate. Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity. A large lava flow from an eruption in 1928 led to the destruction of a population center for the first time since the 1669 eruption.”.

Emanuela who’s on location reported “crazy seismic activity” and that a new fracture has opened on the flank of the SE crater (SEC), presumably on its western flank between Voragine and the SEC.

“An important event is in progress at the volcano. Strong seismic activity, felt by people, has been accompanying the opening of several fractures in the summit area, most notably on the eastern and southern flanks of the New SE crater, which is emitting dense ash plumes”, mentions www.volcanodiscovery.com. For now, it does not pose any danger.
