As a new member to this site could I say thank you for the excellent coverage of the current Etna activity. The coverage and pictures are the
best on the web as far as I can see. i visit Riposto regularly and understand it was covered in 'sand' after the first eruption last week. I am due
back in about ten days for a week or so and am wondering how the town is being affected. Any news would be appreciated! Thanks. Mike
Welcome to ATS!
Thanks for the kudos - I'm glad you enjoy the thread. That makes my day.
Fontanarossa wasn't closed - which surprised me actually.
Milo, S.Alfio a few of the towns closer to Etna were devastated with cenere (ash). Riposto? I've heard nothing about that area - though it's close to
Giarre? That we didn't hear anything would tell me you're all set - that and there's some time for clean up.
Have a safe trip back - let us know how you find Riposto when you get there!
If you're on FB there's a page 'Catania Online' - a real pulse to the area. Something you might find handy.
