A major explosion occurred at Stromboli at 8:04:20 UTC / 9:04 pm local time on November 10, 2020.
The powerful explosion event lasted about 6 minutes (until 20:10:00 UTC), with at least three explosions of minor intensity in addition to the Big Blast. The eruption column rose higher than the Pizzo (sopra la Fosse).
The ejecta, lava and incandescent rocks mainly fell on the Sciara del Fuoco, with a small proportion also covering the Pizzo sopra la Fossa, like the previous major eruption that killed one back in 2019.
The volcanic eruption has been captured by all seismic stations on Stromboli and was characterized by a sequence of explosive events that began at 20:03.50 (UTC), as shown by the seismic graph below.
Meanwhile, the parameters of the eruptive activity has returned to normal levels.
There is also another volcano erupting in Kamchatka right now… And the pictures are just awesome!
According to Italian officials, the seismic event related to the eruption (3.5 x10-4 m / s in speed and 0.38 x10-4 m in displacement) exceeded normal values by more than an order of magnitude.
