Mount Etna Erupts And Shoots Lava Into The Sky

Mount Etna Erupts And Shoots Lava Into The Sky

Mount Etna has erupted, shooting lava and ash into the sky. Watch footage here:

The volcano in Sicily, Italy - which is the most active in Europe - sent huge clouds of ash drifting across its surroundings as streams of lava shot from it.

While it might look like a fiery and fearsome sight, there have been no reports of injuries or damage, with the head of the INGV National Institute for Geophysics and Vulcanology Stefano Branco telling news agency AGI that 'we've seen worse' and it's 'not at all worrying'.

Catania airport has been closed as a precaution though, and emergency services said they were monitoring the situation in three villages at the foot of the volcano - Linguaglossa, Fornazzo and Milo.

To you and I, the sight may seem pretty alarming, but the volcano has been erupting for centuries and has been particularly active in recent decades.

Of course, eruptions can be extremely dangerous, and in 1669 a series of eruptions claimed 20,000 lives; but locals try to go about their lives despite the looming threat.

Incredible 'Ice Volcano' Stands 45 Feet Tall Forms In Kazakhstan

published at20 days ago

Standing at 45 feet tall, the amazing structure is the result of an underground spring in the country's Almaty region, between the villages of Kegan and Shrganak, around four hours away from the capital city of Nur-Sultan.

It was formed by water that sprouted out from the ground and instantly froze.

It is the second to have been spotted, with both tourists and locals flocking to see the volcano for themselves.

However, locals believe it's the first that continuously sprays water out from the top, giving it its volcanic appearance.

Speaking about the impressive spectacle, a resident said: "In general, this is artesian water that gushes out of the ground. In summer everything blooms here with greenery.

"And with the arrival of winter, on the eve of the New Year, it [the iceberg] increases to 14 meters and creates a beautiful location for great shots. It happened that my friends and I came to the 'iceberg' to celebrate the New Year."
