Mt Etna Volcano, Italy - John Seach

Lava flows continue at Mt Etna volcano in Italy. Eruptive activity began three weeks ago, with a fracture forming between 2620 m and 3050 m elevation. The fracture is 1.3 km long, and contains several craters which were formed by explosive activity. Explosions are still occurring and send projectiles to a height of 20 m. Lava continues to erupt from a vent at 2750 m altitude, and flows into the Valle del Bove.
