Molten lava gushes out of Sicily’s Mount Etna volcano

Etna Volcano 1
May 2015ITALY Molten lava is seen spewing from Mount Etna in Sicily in this dramatic photo that captured one of the most active volcanoes on Earth acting up again. The Strombolian activity – in which incandescent matter is propelled in relatively low-level eruptions – occurred at the New SE crater, according to volcanodiscovery.com. The event, captured in the photo by Barcroft Media, was accompanied by a “rising tremor,” the site reported.
“The current pattern is very similar to many past episodes which often culminated in violent explosive (lava fountain) and effusive (lava flow) paroxysms and could very well build up to a new one,” the site said. Mount Etna is the largest and most active volcano in Europe, with frequent eruptions that are often accompanied by large flows of lava – though they rarely endanger inhabited areas. The volcano, which towers above the city of Catania, has been erupting periodically for the past 2,000 years. –NY Post
