Mount Etna Rains Ash on Sicilian Town

Ash rained down on the Sicilian town of Zafferana Etnea on Sunday, February 28, as Mount Etna’s southeast crater erupted.

This footage, shot by Salvatore Palermo, shows the ash falling as he drives through the streets.

Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology reported an eruption early on Sunday morning. In addition to ash and smoke, the institute said the eruption saw sustained lava fountains from the volcano. Credit: Salvatore Palermo via Storyful
