Pubdate: 12/5/2022 11:33:31 AM
  • On 4 December after 14.00 UTC the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) reported the occurrence of lava and pyroclastic flows from the northern and the central-southern sectors of the crater area of the Stromboli Volcano (Aeolian Islands, just north of Sicily Island). The pyroclastic activity was most probably followed by the partial collapse of the terrace crater in the north sector.
  • The pyroclastic flows (that generated significant ash falls) channelled along the "Sciara del Fuoco" (northern flank of the volcano) and reached the sea around 16.00 UTC. According to INGV and the Italian Civil Protection, a tsunami event with sea level change up to 1.5 metres has been detected.
  • As of 5 December, there are no reports of any casualties or damage across the Stromboli Island and the Aeolian Islands.
