New video shows the moment when Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, spewed bubbling lava and hot ash into the Sicilian sky earlier this week.
On Sunday (Jan. 17), lava began “oozing” from the Etna’s southeast crater and toward the east, according to Boris Behncke, a volcanologist at the INGV-Osservatorio Etneo in Catania, Sicily, Express reported. By Monday evening, the crater exploded in a “new paroxysmal eruptive episode,” releasing bursts of lava, hot ash and gas, Behncke tweeted.
Italian authorities issue ash advisory after eruption of Mount Etna. This video shot about 14 miles from the base of the volcano shows a huge plume of smoke rising as lava shoots towards the sky. https://t.co/7BhMUkKaJC pic.twitter.com/bqErtZwin9January 19, 2021
