Spectacular Stromboli: Lava Flows Into Sea
Sicily’s Etna volcano was not the only one to give quite a show last week. On the Aeolian Islands, the famous Stromboli volcano erupted on Thursday, releasing an abundant lava flow that covered an area of 600 meters. Officials said a new crater opened in the Sciara del Fuoco region, on the northeastern side of the volcano.
While all hiking activity on the volcano was suspended, many tourists were able to witness the eruption and lava flow from boats.
