The famous Etna volcano, located on the outskirts of the city of Catania (Italy), erupted again in the afternoon of Tuesday February 16. The phenomenon occurred in the south-eastern crater of the volcano, located in the Valle del Bove, with a powerful explosive activity! The rash began at 4:00 p.m. local time, causing a great rain of ashes and stones up to a centimeter in diameter.

The rash, which was captured by various local media and social media users, caused a cloud of ash which forced the suspension of operations at the airport in the city of Catania, located on the east coast of Sicily.

“Due to the eruptive activity of Etna and due to the abundance of volcanic ash, the airport runway is currently closed: cleanup and recovery activities are underway, ”the central emergency service reported via Twitter.

“After three hours of activity, the lava flows have ceased to emerge from the crater, while those which remain active are heading towards the valley of Bove, on the eastern slope of the volcano”, indicates a statement published by the Institute. National Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV).

“We have seen sometimes worse situations. The current phenomenon is not worrying “, added Stefano Branca, head of the organization.

Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in Europe and, although not an isolated event so far this year, Italian media have given prominence to the impressive images left by the eruption.
