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?
I have to agree with another contributor to this thread who stated you'd probably not hear anything about Etna until she started to really pump out
the lava and cause doom and destruction. No one (but me it seems) wanted to fill up camera and typing time with just a blow off of ash and steam. (I
asked around and many others who witnessed the 'blow' stated it was a mix of steam and ash and sand).
Oh - Another reason I jumped so quick is - With Etna you can never tell - you just never know.
Like others have posted - who've also seen it first hand - she starts out with a little 'poof' and next thing you know the sky is falling and lava
is pouring like dark beer at a Biergarten.
Also, with the whole hype that went on last week over the undersea volcano to the North of Sicily and the belief that when it blows Sicily will be
wiped out along with Calabria? You can see how I'd feel this story fell nicely into place. And that story was only supposition! No movement going
on at all...
So for now she's given us warning - letting us know she's still alive and well and ready to go. Passed some pressure, blown off some sand - But
after the earthquake we had a few days ago (4.3 last week) and now this? Who knows what kind of trouble she might be brewing up. Could be a whole
mountains worth of disaster and drama.
Whatever it is, it will happen soon - Etna doesn't stay quiet for long.
