Europe's Tallest Volcano Bursts to Life Overnight

Europe's Tallest Volcano Bursts to Life Overnight

It was the first big volcano eruption this year. Mount Etna in Italy, on February 19, spewed out hot lava and gas towards the stars.

According to the report, Mount Etna is the tallest volcano in Europe. Gas or lava is being disgorged by it almost constantly. While in 2011, violent bursts from Etna were spotted from space, earlier this year, the volcano's Bocca Nuova crater had erupted from January 10 to 20.

"I've followed the activity of Etna for many years, and with time you learn to know it as if it were your friend", said Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology's videographer and webmaster, Klaus Dorschfeldt.

The latest scene was captured in a video by him only. It has been informed that the famous Sicilian volcano exploded overnight. The same resulted in a fountain of fire moving up into the air.

In recent weeks, varied signs of an imminent paroxysm were emitted by Mount Etna, which is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Lava and strong flashes were also seen from the Sicilian foothills on January 22 in the New Southeast Crater of the volcano.

Dorschfeldt is of the view that the recent eruption could herald new activity.
