Mount Etna Volcano Erupts In Sicily, Italy (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Sicily's Mount Etna is erupting again. The volcano in Italy, which is the tallest and most active volcano in Europe, is spewing lava for the 17th time this year, according to BBC News.

The current eruption has not caused injuries or property damage, according to the Associated Press.

Ash from the eruption has caused a closure at the airport in nearby Catania, Sicily's second-largest city.

According to BBC News, Etna was shooting lava 300 feet (100 meters) into the air.
