Stromboli volcano Italy erupts for second time in two months

Rates : 9

A volcano on the Italian island of Stromboli erupted for the second time in two months on Wednesday. Firefighters deployed planes to try and extinguish fires caused by lava flows. Several members of the public were at the port or on the beach, under the watchful eye of the coast guard. An eruption last month, on July 4, resulted in the death of an Italian hiker. The island, which has around 500 residents and is one of a chain just north of Sicily, is popular amongst tourists despite housing one of the longest continuously active volcanoes in the world.
