Video of Mount Etna shows violent volcanic bursts

February 10th, 2012 by Susan Smith

Sicily’s Mount Etna is the largest active volcano in Europe and the most well-known. Yesterday it burst forth with quite a fireworks display overnight.
The eruption wasn’t as strong as previous bursts, but it lasted for a longer period of time than previous ones.

After more than 12 days of moderate strombolian activity — a kind of mid-level eruption— the New South-East Crater of Mount Etna produced a new paroxysmal eruptive episode (see the video below) in the early morning hours, according to Italy’s INGV-Osservatrio Etneo, which monitors the volcano.

Although lava flows from the New South-East Crater, the nearby villages are safe from lava flow.
