volcano remain dangeriousThe biggest and most active volcano of Europe, Mount Etna, has erupted again, showering volcanic ash on towns dotting the mountain’s slopes and nearby Taormina on the island of Sicily.

However, the eruption did not force any evacuation, but a road was closed for half an hour as a precaution.

Authorities also briefly closed two of the four air corridors serving the nearby Catania airport but air traffic was not interrupted.

Etna erupts occasionally. Although its last major eruption occurred in 1992, it has been spewing ash for quite some time now. Only a few days ago it had erupted forcing disruption of some air routes.
