Flights delayed in Italy as Mount Etna erupts
Europe’s most active volcano, located in Italy, began erupting on Thursday evening, spewing a column of black ash and leading to disrupted flights.
The Sicilian volcano of Mount Etna spewed lava and led to the closure of Reggio Calabria airport on Thursday morning, but flights have since resumed.
The dramatic show from the volcano left neighbouring homes covered in a fine layer of dust on Friday morning. While the eruption only lasted one hour, according to the Daily Star, it was one of Etna’s most violent eruptions in the past 20 years. The last major eruption of Etna was in 1992, reports the Independent.
