An active volcano in Italy gave people some excitement this week, as The Telegraph reported on March 6. A Mount Etna eruption sent ash and lava soaring into the sky Tuesday night, though it didn't seem to cause any significant issues in the area.
Roads in the area of Mount Etna's eruption were covered in ash and volanic stones after the incident. The Telegraph shares a fascinating look at the eruption from Europe's highest active volcano. There are times when air traffic in the area is affected by the volcanic activity, but it seems that wasn't the case this time around.
Mount Etna eruptions are not entirely infrequent, and there are times that airplanes have to alter course to avoid the ash clouds. There are several villages in the area, but the latest eruption didn't seem to cause any issues for those living nearby.
It seems this particular eruption is getting more attention than usual because of the video that was captured showing the blast lighting up the dark sky throughout the Mount Etna eruption. It clearly is a sight to behold.
