Mount Etna has grown by 30 meters in six months

The Etna volcano in Sicily, the highest volcano in Europe, has grown by 30 meters.

In addition to the title of the highest volcano in Europe, Etna is also the most active volcano on the continent. The peak of the mountain consists of two nearby peaks. In the course of regular eruptions over the past six months, the younger southern peak has risen almost thirty meters. At the moment, the height of the mountain is approximately 3357 meters above sea level.

“In the course of analyzing and processing satellite images, it was revealed that the southeastern crater is now much higher than its ‘older brother’, the northeastern crater, which has been the undisputed highest point of Etna for 40 years, – this statement was made in the British National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.
