Ook op kerstdag spuwt de vulkaan Etna op het Italiaanse Sicilië nog steeds lava. Maandag nog moest de lokale luchthaven sluiten vanwege de grote aswolk die de uitbarstingen hadden veroorzaakt. Op de luchthaven in Catania konden de vliegoperaties dinsdag zoals normaal hernemen. De Etna is weliswaar nog steeds actief, met honderden kleine naschokken. De Etna is met 3.330 meter de hoogste vulkaan in Europa, en een van de actiefste vulkanen ter wereld.

The intense seismic activities of Mount Etna continue with - among dozens of earthquakes that were detected at 08:26 pm on 24 December - the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) having registered a magnitude-4 strong quake with its hypocenter at a depth of only two kilometers and the epicenter some seven kilometers northeast of Ragalna, in the province of Catania.
