Mount Etna Ash Cloud Rises Above Sicily

Sicily’s Mount Etna sent plumes of smoke and ash into the air on March 4, following two weeks of continuous volcanic activity. Volcano enthusiast Giuseppe Tonzuso captured this footage on Thursday. According to reports, the ash plume rose at least 5 kilometers above the crater and spread into an umbrella cloud that drifted east and spread ash as far away as Messina, The volcano, Europe’s most active, has been intermittently erupting since February 16. INGV, Italy’s national volcanology institute, reported Strombolian activity and a lava overflow at Etna from the early hours of March 4. Credit: Giuseppe Tonzuso via Storyful
