Spectacular footage shows Mt. Etna eruption

7 posts in this topic

March 1, 2017 - See amazing footage of the erupting Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano. With written records of eruptions dating back to 425 B.C, Etna has almost continuous eruptive activity. A major eruption in 1928 destroyed the town of Mascali, but residents had enough time and warning to evacuate. Each year it produces enough lava to fill a 108-story skyscraper.

Mother nature is awesome.

I love the part in the video when the rocks (lava) tumble down the slope,
it sounds exactly like when I am poking around the glowing coal in my kettle barbecue

I remember flying around Etna back in the 80's while working out of NAS Sigonella.  It is always boiling away inside the vent.

Etna's always been active, just to differing degrees...

Not sure what your point is but I was referring to the eruption that is injuring people and making headlines this week.  I'm well aware it's an active volcano.
