Europe’s most active volcano has awed even experienced volcanologists lately with magnificent spurts of lava light up the Sicilian skies
ROME — Mount Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, has awed even experienced volcanologists lately with magnificent spurts of lava light up the Sicilian sky every evening.
The Most Recent eruption immediately petered out by approximately 0900 GMT Tuesday, based on Italy’s National Institute for Geophysics and Volcanology.
For more than a week, Etna was belching lava, ash and lava stones on a normal basis. The neighboring Catania Airport closed briefly, and inhabitants of this town of Pedara stated it seemed one day a week as though it were raining stones as a thick blanket of ashes covered town.
Volcanologist Boris Behncke of this federal institute’s Etna monitoring center has followed the hottest paroxysms with amazement. Composing on the magician’s site today, he explained that following”gifting us minutes of suspense” within the prior nights, Etna eventually erupted in ways”those people who’ve worked within this for years have seldom seen.”
Well, its successor, at the night of 22-23 February, was a great deal stronger.”
