Mount Etna erupts for fourth time this year

Mount Etna spews lava on the southern Italian island of Sicily February 9, 2012.

The volcano located on the southern Italian island of Sicily began to erupt today, marking the fourth eruption this year, blasting out a huge ash cloud reaching 6,000 and 7,000 metres above sea level.

The eruption took place along an active crater on the south-eastern part of the volcano and the overspilling lava was moving through the area of Valle del Bove, a desert area, while the ash cloud was being blown toward the east.

In 2011 the massive 45-kilometre wide volcano erupted a total of 18 times.
