Tallest Volcano of Europe Astonishes with Overnight Eruption

Mount-EtnaEurope's tallest volcano tended to erupt overnight on Tuesday, making a very much familiar sound. It has been found that the eruption of the volcano woke up residents of the tiny Sicily Island in Italy.

The active stratovolcano named Mount Etna is, however, not close to any of the population centers. But, as per the findings, the Sicilian city of Catania falls closest to the same. It is, therefore, that the residents could hear the sound of eruption.

It has been found that gas and lava were spewed out by the volcano that moved straight up to the skies. The incident, the first big eruption in 2013, was captured in a video by videographer and webmaster, Klaus Dorschfeldt, from Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

The mountain that is some 10,922 feet high, dependent on summit eruptions, had erupted earlier as well this year. It was seen erupting in January for two times, but this time it just burst to life. The report finds that the mountain has six different craters, which erupt from time to time, mostly at the summit.

"Following it constantly learn to be a keen observer and a minor change can lead to something important", said Dorschfeldt.
