Extract of our first report, just after the quake happened :

A very shallow earthquake of Magnitude 4.5Â just occurred in the waters of the Eolian islands.
Agosto es el mes turístico en las islas Liparian, por lo que mucha gente se ha sentido el temblor.
The epicenter is located on the shores of southern Vulcano island, a still active volcano. The Italian authorities are very alerted on the whereabouts of this volcano, which is seen as 'possible to erupt' in the (near) future.

The Eolian islands are an island archipelago in between Sicily and Italy. The islands are or active or dormant or old volcanoes. The most famous volcano on the islands is Stromboli volcano, constantly active since long time.
