The Stromboli volcano in Italy erupted violently at around 10:17 UTC on August 28, 2019.

This is one of the most powerful eruptions of the volcano in recent years. The dark plume of ash and gas was visible from nearby islands.

Here a first neat video:

According to INGV, the loud explosion took place in the central-southern area of the crater terrace.

The incandescent rocks and projectiles were ejected throughout the terrace before rolling down to the coastline in a pyroclastic flow along the Sciara del Fuoco:

The landslides and explosion were recorded by onsite seismometers

That eruption was so powerful, that officials raised the Aviation Color Code to Red.

Trekking and excursions to the summit of the stromboli are prohibited for now.

With explosions like those of July 3rd and today, there would have been no chance of survival for anybody at the summit.
