A volcano in Italy erupted in a massive explosion for the second time in two months spewing ash into the atmosphere.
Stromboli is a volcanic island located off the northern coast of Sicily. The volcano is nearly 1,000 metres high.
Video posted on social media showed boats racing to escape clouds of volcanic ash. A column of smoke rose high above the mountain.
"We saw a big explosion, a big eruption and we heard a very loud roar. A lot of smoke came out immediately and we saw the lava flowing, it was really impressive," French tourist Jean-François Avril told Reuters.
Nello Musumeci, the president of the Sicily region wrote on Facebook that there were no reported injuries or damage.
When the volcano erupted in July, a hiker was killed and another person was injured.
Stromboli is one of the most active volcanoes in the world according to Geology.com.
