Etna belches out 6 km high lava plume

(ANSA) – CATANIA, MAR 12 – Etna on Friday belched out a six
km high lava plume in the latest of a string of spectacular
eruptions from Europe’s tallest active volcano.
    The volcano spewed ash and lapilli onto nearby Catania but the
eastern Sicilian city’s airport was still operational.
    A southeastern breeze helped take the high and dense column of
lavic ash across the city.
    Lapilli also fell onto a number of smaller towns and villages on
Etna’s southern slopes including Nicolosi, Trecastagni, Pedara,
Aci Sant’Antonio and San Gregorio.
    The iconic volcano also emitted a fresh lava flow.
    Volcanology institute INGV said it was the 12th “paroxysm” in
Etna’s latest phase of volcanic activity, which began in mid
February. (ANSA).
