A strong explosion at Stromboli on 5 April around 0915 produced a mushroom-shaped ash cloud that rose several hundred meters above the volcano. Rocks ejected during the explosion damaged two homes and several roads in the town of Ginostra ~ 2 km SW of Stromboli's summit. There were no reports of injuries.
