Etna southeastern crater erupts for 3 hours

August 20, 2011 SICILY – (AGI) Catania – Mount Etna suddenly erupted at 6 o’clock this morning, and went on for three hours. A molten flow of lava began to billow from the new south-eastern crater being formed at the base of the former mouth of the volcano, along with clouds of black ash, which the wind blew in a south-westerly direction, towards the Piana di Catania area. –AGI
