Stromboli - 28.03.2020 - overflow of the terrace in the sciara del Fuoco, respectively at 7:06 p.m. / LGS and 7:09 p.m. / INGV OE - one click to enlarge
This March 28, 2020 at 16:44 UTC, the geophysical monitoring network of the Laboratory of experimental geophysics #LGS of the Department of Earth sciences of the University of Florence recorded an increase in the seismic tremor at Stromboli, accompanied by events of roll (such as "rockfall"), the longest of which (approximately 3 minutes) took place at 16:57 UTC.
This phase of increase in tremors is associated with an overflow, that is to say an overflow of lava, from the NE crater as in the images of the Labronzo camera and caused the collapse of small portions of the edge of the crater.
At the moment, there is no significant change in the other parameters monitored. This activity is still ongoing.
In the past 24 hours, 128 exhalations have been identified at Popocatépetl, accompanied by water vapor, volcanic gases and small amounts of ash. Emissions of ash dispersed in the northwest sector (NW). So far, there have been no reports of ash falling. WebcamsdeMexico posted photos of the activity at 8:16 a.m., 8:29 a.m. and 11:55 a.m., viewed from San Nicolás de los Ranchos, Puebla.
In addition, 967 minutes of tremor were recorded.
At the time of this report / 11h local, and from an hour, an emission of volcanic gases and slight amounts of ash dispersed to the northwest (NW) are observed.
The alert level remains at Amarillo Fase 2
