October 23, 2021The 52nd paroxysmal event recorded since last February on Etna ended.

It was one of the most intense for energy release.

In addition to the lava fountain, accompanied by violent roars, an intense and high eruptive cloud emerged from the south-east crater which caused ash and pyroclastic material to fall on the villages on the slopes of the north-east side of the volcano.

The lava flows that emerge from the South-East cone and head into the Bove valley are still fed.

The tremor levels of the Etna magma channels have 'collapsed' to medium-high values ​​and appear, from the instrumentation of the Ingv-Oe of Catania, in further decline.
