I'm not doubting the OP but it seems a bit weird that one of the worlds best known volcano's does not get a mention any place?

It sure did, at least according to Boris (and he should know), but it wasn't new magma being erupted. Instead it was pulverized pieces of rock in an old conduit - pretty common at volcanoes like Etna.

Interesting stuff. Keep us updated as it is not on the news yet. How far away are you right now?
Pictures are from my roof - I'm lucky she's in my backyard.
Will keep the updates coming.
An ash eruption occurred at the summit of Mt Etna volcano, Italy on 8th April 2010. The eruption occurred at the lower east flank of the Southeast Crater. The eruption increased the crater from 10 m to 50 m. The eruptions were preceded by a series of earthquakes at the Pernicana fault on 2nd April. This was the first time in 6 years that earthquakes occurred in this location on Mt Etna (NE flank). The largest earthquake was magnitude 4.2. Ground cracking occurred adjacent to Ragabo mountain hut. Mareneve road, which links the town of Linguaglossa to the tourist area of Piano Provenzana, was fractured in two locations. The earthquake focus was at a depth of 1 km, and surface fractures occurred over a distance of 1 km. At a location 1 km up slope from Ragabo mountain hut, there was vertical displacement of the ground by 20 cm.
