Eruptions at Mount Etna shortly before dawn on Saturday, May 21, sent plumes of ash and smoke hundreds of metres into the skies above Sicily. Videographer Turi Caggegi, captured the stunning footage close to the volcano, which saw increased volcanic activity from its north-east crater on May 17.“On May 17th we witnessed an increase in the amplitude of volcanic tremors and recorded intense degassing accompanied by occasional, weak emissions from the north-eastern crater,” explained the Catania branch of Italy’s National Vulcanology and Geophysics Institute (INGV).
