Etna's ash spewed from the volcano covered roads around the volcano and streets in settlements such as Zafferana Etnea, Acireale and Giarre.

In the information shared by the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), it was noted that new eruptions were observed in the crater named "Voragine" in the first hours of the day and lava flows were experienced in high areas.

REACHED 5 KILOMETERS HIGH

It was stated that the ash spewed by Etna reached a height of about 5 kilometers.

WARNING FOR AIRPLANES

In the media reports, it was stated that a "red" warning was issued for airplanes passing through the region due to the ash cloud, but for the moment there is no situation affecting air traffic at Fontanarossa Airport in Catania.

HIGHEST ACTIVE VOLCANO

Etna Volcano is the highest active volcano in continental Europe with a height of about 3,300 meters.

RED ALERT CONTINUES

On the other hand, it was reported that volcanic activities continued at Stromboli, another active volcano in the country, which became active after Etna during the week, albeit at a lower intensity than on July 5, but the "red" alert status continued.
