Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Etna volcano in Sicily once more is showing signs of activity after the recent, short-lived eruption ended last week

Italian experts report that the volcano remains restless with dense and relatively intense ash emissions are occurring from the central summit crater.

INGV Catania wrote about this activity: “It is coughing since the early afternoon of 13 June 2019, after more than three years of relative calm”and added that the emissions are occurring from a new vent in the northwestern inner wall of the crater.

This vent is distinct from the collapse pits that had opened in August 2016 and between January and April 2019 in the eastern and northern inner walls of the crater.”
