Italy’s Stromboli volcano erupts, lava reaches the sea (video)

A volcano on the Italian island of Stromboli erupted on Sunday (October 9) morning, unleashing a dramatic plume of smoke and a lava flow that reached the sea.

The eruptive phase on Stromboli caused the partial collapse of the crater terrace, and the lava flow, caused by the collapse of material from part of the crater rim, produced a 3-minute seismic signal recorded by the seismic network.

No casualties or damage were reported.

The Stromboli volcano, located in southern Italy off the Sicilian coast, is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet and has been erupting almost continuously since 1932.
