In the evening, a dense cloud of lava, volcanic gases and rock rose over the mountain, which is more than 3,300 meters high. Explosions could be seen and heard repeatedly.
Ash also fell on several towns around Mount Etna, such as Milo and Zafrana Etnaia. However, there were initially no reports of major damage. Operations continued at Catania Island Airport. Mount Etna is the largest active volcano in Europe. This mountain is approximately 3350 meters high. However, the exact height varies frequently due to explosions and cinder cones.
