A mild strombolian activity accompanied by a lava flow is taking place at Mount Etna, Italy since November 28, 2018. The explosions are happening at the New Southeast Crater and are still very small.
According to INGV’s Boris Behncke, Etna’s current activity is quite small and absolutely harmless, but very beautiful.
However, compared to a few days ago, the explosions are now more frequent.
“The volcano is preparing something, but if we think about it… it ALWAYS does,” Behncke said.
