Mount Etna is erupting for the sixth time this year with lava and plumes of smoke and ash from a new crater on the volcano's southeast side. The new activity was preceded by new phase that began last night and that, according to experts from the INGV in Catania, has the same characteristics as the one before this one. Ash, carried by wind towards the east, has not yet created problems at the Fontanarossa airport, which is fully operational.
