A priori, the activity dropped a notch . It is quite usual: one day the lava fountains are always spectacular and very aerial, on the second day those fountains turn into rivers of lava and there is often the creation of one or more craters (already visible).
, mouths became extinct and flowst in grattons extend over a wide area.
Activity is nevertheless always visible, but it will be cold and there may still be many people … For the more adventurous, the sunrise is spectacular (but you have to get up early …).
The eruption continues and always worth a visit. It is clearly visible from the Pas de Bellecombe or from the Piton Partage . There will certainly be many people, but we can hope that the establishment of the shuttles will prevent the mess from last night.
This morning the webcam of the Piton Partage not show any incandescent.
