A strong eruption of Etna began in the night: around 11:45 pm, in fact, a strong Strombolian activity is underway from the crater accompanied by a large lava flow.

Loud roars are heard throughout the Etna area, up to Fornazzo.
The volcanic tremor is strongly increasing by the time, while a large cloud of smoke and ash has risen towards Catania City, pushed by the mistral wind towards the south/east, right towards the Etna capital.
