La Fournaise on alert 2-2

Following the seismic crisis of April 2 in the morning, between 8:15 a.m. and 8:51 a.m. local time, and after a lull of more than 3 hours, a volcanic tremor, synonymous with the arrival of magma in proximity to the surface, has been recorded since approximately 12:20 local time.

According to the OVPF records, the source of this tremor is located on the eastern flank, at inside the Enclosure.

No visual confirmation of an onset of eruption could be made at this time and
we cannot confirm the arrival of the lava on the surface. Nevertheless the presence
of a tremor shows the emission of hot and incandescent gases on the surface, and
possibility of lava emission.

The recommended alert level is 2-2
