PRESS REVIEW: NEW ETNA ERUPTION, CATANIA AIRPORT CLOSED

Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano, is once again putting on a show. Yesterday, in fact, we witnessed a series of spectacular eruptions in which a column of ashy smoke, up to 12 km high above sea level, headed southeast, involving the municipalities of the eastern foothills, from Zafferana to Giarre, and further south Acireale, Aci Castello and Catania.

Yesterday’s was the second paroxysm of the year, following a lull of several weeks and over 50 episodes last year.

The instruments of the Ingv (National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology) in Catania also observe an increase in infrasonic activity, which is localised near the Bocca Nuova crater.

As a precautionary measure, yesterday Fontanarossa airport in Catania was closed to traffic for about two hours, from 1.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m.. Today, flight operations resumed as normal.
