Overnight Etna eruptions turns into lava flow

  CATANIA - The spectacular eruption of Mount Etna has now turned into a gentle lava flow down the side of the Sicilian volcano, the largest in Europe.

  The Etna observatory in Catania, part of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, revealed how the explosive phase, which began on Monday night has more or less finished, though occasional ash emissions still persist. Two lava flows remain, gently cooling, one flowing north and one flowing into the Valle del Bove.

  The amplitude of the tremors measured within and around the earthquake were back to normal levels, having been much higher last night at the height of this eruption. Though relatively small, this eruption was visible from Catania and Taormina
