The volatile volcano began erupting last Sunday, according to a local volcanologist.
Boris Behncke, from the INGV-Osservatorio Etneo in Catania, Sicily, said that lava began “oozing” from the Etna’s southeast crater and toward the east last weekend.
A second lava overflow was detected from the north side of the same crater days later.
Following the initial eruption, volcanic ash covered cars of the nearby small village of Milo, near Catania.
