Etna Volcano has first eruption of 2012

Volcano Etna had its first eruption of 2012 and a spewed lava and ash column that reached 5000 thousand metres of the level of the sea. The eruptive activity lasted several hours and according to the National Geophyisics and Vulcanology Institute (INGV), it was remarkable intense and energetic.

However, thanks to the simulations performed by the same Institute, the reach of the ash cloud was determined and it was not necessary to close the nearby Catania airport.

“We did simulations based on our personalized models on the eruptive clouds spewed by Etna that were positive and we could prevent the closing of the Catania airport,” said Domenico Patané of the local INGV said
