Tall Ash Plume Rises From Mount Etna Into Sicilian Sky

Mount Etna continued to erupt on March 4, sending a large plume of smoke and ash into the sky, as this timelapse video shows.

Local resident Meagan Huddleston captured this footage on Thursday morning. “I never thought I would be so at peace watching a volcano erupt,” she said on Instagram.

The volcano, Europe’s most active, has been intermittently erupting since February 16. INGV, Italy’s national volcanology institute, reported Strombolian activity and a lava overflow at Etna from the early hours of March 4. Credit: Meagan Huddleston via Storyful
