A spectacular light and ash show is illuminating the Italian island of Sicily. Mount Etna has started spewing fire again. Small eruptions occur every few months, the last one in May 2016.
The active volcano on the Italian island of Sicily has spewed ash amid unusually high seismic activity. Airspace around the mountain has been partially closed and hikers have been brought down for their safety.
Volcanic activity on Mount Etna has continued after a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck the nearby region, injuring several people. The mountain has been shooting ash, smoke and lava stones into the air over recent days.
The active volcano on the Italian island of Sicily came alive overnight, spraying columns of ash and lava as high as 150 meters into the sky. But authorities haven't ordered any nearby villages to evacuate.
Scientists say the Anak Krakatau volcanic island in Indonesia has lost three-quarters of its volume since it erupted a week ago, causing a deadly tsunami. And it is also considerably shorter.
