Catania airport reopens after another eruption from Mount Etna

November 30, 2013Catania, ITALY The eastern Sicilian city of Catania’s Fontanarossa airport reopened on Friday after Mount Etna’s recent eruption halted flights there in recent days, the airport said. Following a quiet summer, Europe’s most active volcano spewed molten lava up thousands of feet high as thick ash clouds spread for miles around. Officials said no serious damage has been caused by the eruption, which caused Etna to produce rare series of perfect steam rings. A dark cloud of tiny rock fragments spread over the island leaving cars, road and beaches covered in a thick black layer earlier this month. Etna’s last major eruption was in 1992 but it has regular smaller ones. –Adnkronos
