The eruption began on Thursday, and although it has declined slightly in intensity, it continues to pose a safety concern for those climbing the flanks of the volcano, which rises to 3,295 meters. Etna’s last eruption occurred in December. This new eruption does not seem to pose a threat to the inhabited areas nearby, nor to the airport of the city of Catania.
