Seems like Etna is erupting again.
Luckily the lava is flowing into an unhabited area (for now).
Lava has been seen flowing from a new crack on Italy's Mt Etna.
The volcano on the island of Sicily has been virtually dormant since early last year.
Vulcanologists say a new vent has opened and lava is flowing into an uninhabited valley on the mountain's southeastern flank.
Etna last erupted in June 2001, throwing molten rock 400m into the sky and spewing lava down its sides.

Better keep an eye on Etna now...
