Etna erupts but no damage is reported
Text size Aa Aa

Red hot lava streams have been sighted flowing down the sides of Europe’s most active volcano, Mount Etna on the Italian island of Sicily.

The eruption is the first of 2014 after a particularly active year in 2013, a result of a new crater forming on the southeastern side of the volcano.

Despite several inhabited villages dotting the mountain’s slopes, no evacuations have been ordered.
