Etna is making its own again.

As in February and August of this year, the most active volcano in Europe erupted again on Saturday 23 October in the morning.

🌋 After Cumbre Vieja in the Canaries, Etna erupted on October 23.

Very imposing clouds of ash rose, causing, at the height of the eruption, lightning strikes.

Local observers reported pyroclastic flows but no material damage to the surrounding villages or any casualties was deplored by the local media.

Increased surveillance

This eruption occurs in Sicily while the Cumbre Vieja volcano, in the Canary Islands (Spain) has been causing extensive damage to La Palma for nearly a month.

We warned you of the awakening of Etna yesterday!

Now it's for good!
