Updates on volcanic activity (Smithsonian)

The Smithsonian/USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report provides information about global volcanism on a weekly basis. Latest Etna report has been published on 01 Jun 2022 08:38.
INGV reported that during 23-29 May activity at Etna?s Southeast Crater (SEC) was characterized by intermittent Strombolian activity and occasional ash emissions. At 0805 on 29 May a fissure opened in the upper part of the Valle del Bove. Two vents along the fissure, located at 2,850 and 2,730 m elevation, produced slow-moving lava flows that had advanced E to 2,090 m elevation by the next day. During an aerial survey conducted on 30 May scientists observed a series of about four arc-shaped fractures on the E flank of SEC, between 3,000 and 3,200 m elevation, and unstable and slumped material which had moved downslope.
