Mount Etna Eruption 2015: Mount Etna erupted in a dramatic style for the first time in two years.

Europe’s tallest active volcano spewed volumes of fire and ash into the sky over the Italian island of Sicily. The eruptions went several kilometers high.

While the active volcano has been quiet for two years, it erupted spectacularly yet violently. Although the volcanic activity lasted for a short while, the eruption has been one of the most violent for Etna in the last two decades.

The height of the lava spew reached one kilometer. Other hot materials erupted in the volcanic activity reached as high as three kilometers. A thick layer of ash settled in nearby villages of Linguaglossa, Francavilla di Sicilia, Milazzo, Messina, and Reggio Calabria.

According to BBC, the nearest airport on the Italian mainland had to be closed as a result of the eruption.
