Etna active again, mini-crater spotted
The famous Sicilian “Mountain of Fire”, Mount Etna, has become active again after scientists spotted a new mini-crater on one of its slopes overnight. Fountains of lava were seen above the crater on Thursday along with fumes and an ash column. Trembling has been detected inside the volcano and the tension is rising, scientists say. The nearest airport has been closed for safety reasons. It is the third eruption of Etna this year and lately the volcano is becoming more active. Etna has erupted 200 times in its history. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the world – in an almost constant state of activity.
