Etna puts on new spectacle

(ANSA) – CATANIA, FEB 16 – Etna put on a fresh spectacle by
belching out a large plume of smoke and a long lava flow from
the southeast crater of its summit towering above Catania on
    The fireworks show is part of a new ‘Strombolian’ eruption.
    Etna is Europe’s tallest active volcano.
    In its latest show of pyrotechnics in eastern Sicily, the
relatively new crater on the southeastern slope of the iconic
volcano spewed out “sporadic bursts” of lava and ash plumes,
volcanologists said.
    Catania’s international airport, 60 km to the south, has not yet
been affected, but a local crisis unit is meeting this evening
to assess the situation.
    Many such blowups in the past have shut down the airport and
covered Catania in ash. (ANSA).
