Mount Etna is active: Watch Sicily’s volcano burst to life today
Mount Etna continues to put on a beautiful but dangerous show today as the active volcano continues to erupt, sending ash nearly seven miles into the sky. The volcano has been active for almost a week, with new eruptions occurring every few days and causing a brief closure of Italy’s Catania airport yesterday morning.
