Mount Etna has erupted in a fiery show of lava in eastern Sicily.
The volcano’s latest eruptions, which can last days and even weeks, began yesterday.
The giant orange fountains of lava, spewing towards the sky, could be seen in the city of Catania and the resort town of Taormina.
Although volcanic ash clouds can cause flight disruptions, the nearby Catania airport was operating normally.
Authorities reported no danger to the towns that dot the mountain’s slopes.
