Mount Etna continues to spew out lava and black billowing
Emissions of red hot lava from Europes most active
volcano have dropped slowly over the last few days since being
jolted awake by an earthquake nearly one week ago. Its
displays of energy are still impressive as the booming sound
of the volcano fills the mountain top as stones, smoke and
lava are thrown from its innards.
Now that the danger seems to have passed, the volcano has
become a tourist attraction as local people and
vulcanologists sit on the mountain side with their sleeping
bags to watch the display.
"Everytime I see this it makes me think how small humans
are compared to the energy and the strength that
there is inside the earth," said French vulcanologist Maurice
Hubert. "We are very little but I think its good this way."
Fear that one of the lava flows could reach a nearby
village have now diminished but noone really
pretends to know what the vulcano could do next.
"You still have one lava arm flowing and it will probably
flow for some more time but overall the activity
is diminishing and I really dont think there is anything to
worry about," said Italian vulcanologist Professor Franco
