Italy's Etna volcano erupts in eastern Sicily, poses no danger so far

One of the most active volcanoes in the world, it has been largely dormant for the last few years.

It can burst into action several times a year.


A series of hearth quakes hit Sicily October 29, 2002 as nearby Mount Etna spewed lava and ash for a third day.

Despite being visible from as far away as Catania and Taormina, experts say this latest eruption is not risky.

The volcano's eruptions have been known to last anywhere from days to weeks.

Italy's Mount Etna volcano first became active on January 23 and has experienced a series of eruptions ever since. During that time, the lava flow threatened to swallow a Sicilian village and global aid came as they stemmed the lava tunnel with concrete blocks to stop the flow.

But it came to life on Monday evening, with bright orange lava spewing from its 3,330m-high peak.

Mount Etna is at it again. The volcano's first recorded observation was in 425 B.C.

Catania airport was operating normally today, even though volcanic ash clouds can cause flight disruptions, as much of Europe learnt when Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010.
