Piton de La Fournaise - the eruptive site and cracks, seen by Sentinel 2 bands 12,11 8A this 11.06.2019
At Piton de La Fournaise, the eruption started on 06 June 2019 at 6:35 am (local time) continues.
The intensity of the eruptive tremor (witnessing the intensity of the eruption) has decreased by a factor of 3 since the beginning of the eruption. This decrease is related to the gradual cessation of activity on the highest eruptive fissures.
At 15:30 local time, only the lowest altitude crack was still active. Due to bad weather conditions, the casting front could not be observed by the on-site team.
The estimated surface flows from the satellite data, via the MIROVA HOTVOLC platform (OPGC - University of Auvergne), were between 7 and 27 m3 / s today.
The eruption should be visible from the RN2.
