Mt Etna Eruption Spurts Lava into Sky

Mt Etna acted up on Saturday and Sunday sending hot lava and volcanic gases into the night skyline. The scene was visible from the island of Sicily. While the flights above the region where the volcano was active were cancelled, otherwise the airport remained open

There was no danger to villages on the slopes and therefore no mass migrations took place. Mt Etna happens to be the most active volcano in all of Europe. It is also the highest. It remains in a near-continuous eruptive state and that has been so since 1992. 

The ground shook in a series of tremors during the time preceding the volcanic activity. After the tremors the volcano began spouting forth lava and gases. The last occasion of eruption was in late October of this year and it was so fearsome that it led to the declaration of the airspace around Sicily as a no-go area

Over a dozen similar eruptions have taken place this year. Mt Etna lies between the two regional areas of Messina and Catania. It is 3,329 meters in height although this varies slightly depending upon the eruptions that solidify with time to form the peak crust. The volcano in particular has a highly volatile crater towards the southeastern sector and lava from it flowed down the nearby valley.
