Have watched the ferry/excursion boats loading and disembarking passengers and astonished at the number of people on these boats. Overloading?
Pouring rain on the island!
The fire tug has been at the pier for a few days now.
look at all that ash falling just now and dark sky
The wind must have blown it this way unlike the last eruption. The large ferry has just arrived. It seemed to be holding off the coast earlier.
James, it's clearing up now. It was dark for a while from the eruption. It was scary but at the same time, it was amazing.
Is that ash falling past camera from today's eruption?
4aug19--A Thank You to our host, Hotel Ossidiana - Stromboli, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of Scari Beach, Stromboli - Eolian Islands, captivating.
Lots of people are coming in for the weekend as it is Friday there.
Great! People relaxing on the beach today. Long may it continue. Sunday 21st July.
Seems to be a lot of boats and lots of people. Are they all leaving? 17th july 20.00
Right now, it looks like a lot of people leaving. Wondering if this is typical for Friday evening???
I think the same, Carol! Do wonder about house pets and as well the wildlife animals.
I know some will think I am being pathetic, but I I feel so sorry for any dogs and other pets that may still be on the Island. Some of the animals can forage for themselves, but looking back at other disasters over the years lots of animals relied on some outside help. It is obviously a danger zone so any help would be limited, if at all. May normality resume very soon for all.
Seemed as if a lot of people had returned earlier now loads more leaving by the looks of it.
Wonder if many people/tourists have decided to leave the island temporarily?
