Spectacular footage shows Mount Etna continuing to spew lava


Italy’s Mount Etna continued to spew lava and ash into sky today (Thursday).

Europe’s most active volcano on Sicily Island started to erupt on Tuesday (Feb. 16) for the second time this month.

The rain of ash and lava affected the international airport of Catania, which stopped operations temporarily.

On Wednesday the residents and municipal workers cleaned streets, courtyards, and cars, bagging the ash.

Italy has three active volcanos that erupted in the last hundred years. Mount Etna on Sicily and Stromboli continue to be active. Mount Vesuvius near Naples last erupted in 1944.
