Incandescent explosive eruptions from the summit crater in October 1767 accompany a lava flow from a fissure on the upper north and NW flanks that descends toward Portici, on the west flank. This marked the end of an eruption that began in 1764. In 1766 a lava flow traveled to the WSW, towards Resina, and to the south, towards Torre Annunziata.
