peruvian_volcanoSICILY: Mount Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, which had its last major eruption in 1992, has erupted again, lighting up the sky over much of eastern Sicily and shooting up a towering column of ash into the sky.

 

However, the eruption, which began late Saturday and tapered off by Sunday morning, didn’t endanger any of the villages dotting the mountain’s slopes, and no evacuation was ordered.

 

The airport in nearby Catania said air space above the volcano was closed to flights, but the
airport itself was operating normally, including takeoffs and departures.

 

Etna has been erupting occasionally. It is one of the most active volcanoes in Europe.
