p > On February 21, local time, Mount Etna erupted in Italy, a large amount of magma flowed, stocks of heat rose.

According to reports, the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanoes of Italy said that after the eruption, there were about 20 very violent explosions in the crater southeast of Mount Etna, which caused seismic signals. The average amplitude has increased significantly in a short time.

The volcanologist at the institute, Benke, said that the eruption was the strongest eruption in the southeast crater. At the same time, due to the weak wind, the settlement of pyroclastic material was greatly restricted.

At present, the main lava flow has reached a very low level. It has reached the position where the previous paroxysmal volcano stopped and is far away from densely populated areas. Therefore, this eruption will not pose a threat to nearby residents. (Huang Xin)
