The eruption continues at Piton de la Fournaise, without changing of location ... it would be located behind the Château Fort (take Bert Piton trail to the Nez Coupe Tremblet). The OVPF said that the tremor was sharply divided by five since the beginning of the eruption; the signal strength has stabilized for several hours.
Several fountains are present and a spatter cone drafted.
Due to adverse weather, the observatory has no plans to field visit today.
Update by Fournaise.info / 12h:
Since 8:45 this morning, the observatory recorded a significant drop of volcanic tremor. At 11:00 the tremor stopped, and only a residual degassing signal persists.
This means very likely stopping the flow of the lava in surface.
No hypothesis is discarded on the evolution of the situation in the coming days.
