Morning Activity At El Hierro Reveals Vigorous 2nd Vent

The activity at El Hierro Volcano has taken an interesting turn. The 2nd large vent to open up has created a strong jacuzzi area and emitted many smoking lava stones (SLS).Views on this morning's webcam revealed two very distinct 'jacuzzi' areas, with the Eastern vent emitting far more floating steamy lava rocks. These were numerous and frequent this morning.

The harmonic tremor (below) seemed to correspond with the activity.

The lava stones are shown below.
 The activity, for now, continues as it has now for months. | Impressum
