Update ETNA, December 5, 2015, 21:00 UTC
In the last 24 hours there weretwo episodes of paroxysms from the crater of Voragine ., one in the evening of December 4, 2015, between 20h30 and 21h15 UTC (local time = -1), and the second in the afternoon December 5, between 14h35 and 15h 55 GMT. These paroxysms repeated in almost every detail those that occurred in the early hours of December 3 and the morning of December 4, with large lava fountains and high eruption columns of several kilometers.
This morning, the tremor is always important, and it seems that it is now the turn of southeastern crater that would establish a new peak since the new « pit crater » at the top of its eastern flank.
At 11 hours, the tremor resumed its march upwards, activity on the new « pit crater » at the top of the New South East Crater cone is well marked on the thermal camera images.
