Moment when Stromboli volcano coughs up plumes of smoke

Published on November 17, 2020 by

Italy’s Stromboli Volcano had a ‘high intensity’ eruption, which sent an avalanche of pyroclastic flow rushing down the side of the mountain.
The stronger-than-usual explosion was captured by thermal surveillance cameras belonging to the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

Stromboli is one of the Earth’s most active volcanoes. Luckily, no one was affected by this particular blast. The most recent death caused by the volcano’s awakening was in 2019 when a 35-year-old hiker from Sicily was struck by erupting rock and killed.
