28/05 Strombolian activity increasing

Krabusches reported increasing of strombolian activity of Bottoniera. They also visited top craters and they were so plenty of gases that it was impossible to take good photos. Road to reach new craters is very hard and anyway crater zone is risky. They followed guide’s suggestions about ‘safe limit distance’ and they appurated Etna guides gave them good tips. Normal explosions in Bottoniera are not so high or wide but sometimes they occur much bigger ones and if you thought to have been in a safe zone you could find yourself under heavy bombing. It is suggested to absolutely avoid to go to craters without a guide.
