Mount Etna in Sicily spectacular erupts for first time in two years!

Mount Etna has erupted with spectacular plumes of lava, fire and cloud lightning known as “dirty thunderstorm” — caused when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in the volcanic plume collide and produce static charges.

Europe’s tallest active volcano, Mount Etna in Sicily, has erupted (on the 3rd December and lasted about 50 mins) for the first time in two years, sending plumes of fire and ash several kilometres high into the sky.

The eruption began with a fountain of lava stretching one kilometre in the sky, then an ash plume reaching three kilometres.
