Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) reported “a lava overflow with intense explosive activity at the rims of the northern region of the crater”.

“At 2:16 p.m. local time, there was a more intense eruption in the south-central region of the crater. From 2:28 p.m., small material collapses began to be observed in the upper part of Sciara del Fuoco. and at 2:31 p.m. lava overflow. and as explosive activity continued, one or more pyroclastic flows formed, possibly triggered by the collapse of part of the north sector crater rim.

INGV also explains that around 3:19 pm, another large pyroclastic flow was observed to form. “From a seismic point of view, the average amplitude of volcanic tremor is currently moderate-to-high with evidenced by an increasing trend,” concludes the text.
