Europe’s largest active volcano, Mount Etna erupted by releasing lava and explosions in the crater, overnight, according to volcano researchers Saturday.
A massive dust eruption into the air forcing two airports in Catania, Sicily closed. However, it reopened, late Saturday.
The volcano eruption occurred after the lava sparks recorded by the Geophysical and Volcanic Institute (INGV), early June and previous eruptions in December last year.
The eruption on the mountain was frequent and the last major eruption took place in 2009.
The Institute said the new eruption occurred randomly and lava flows were recorded as far as 1.5 kilometers south-east of the volcanic crater.
