Mt Etna’s volcanic eruption unleashes dirty thunderstorm

Etna
December 2015 CATANIA, Italy Mount Etna in Italy has ignited the skies over Italy with a remarkable display of fire and lightning. Sicily’s tallest peak and active volcano erupted into life after two years of silence early on Thursday, (Friday NZT). The eruption lasted less than an hour but scientists said it was among the most violent eruptions from the volcano in the past two decades.
The Washington Post reported that the intense eruption sent ash 3 km into the sky and caused a “dirty thunderstorm” – when lightning is caused by static electricity produced in a volcanic plume. The phenomenon was also captured in Chile earlier this year. –Stuff NZ
