Categories: Blog, Sicily

TAGS: , , , , ,

In Sicily we do not celebrate Halloween, or rather we celebrate it now but without much conviction. This brand new Anglo-Saxon tradition, in fact, could not replace yet our age-old “Dead Souls’ Night”, linked to myths and legends and … yes, even to witches and typically local ghosts. (more…)

In the afternoon of the 12th April 2012, it came at the New Southeast Crater of Mount Etna once an outbreak, the 24th since the start of the eruptive phase, in January 2011 and the 6th in the current year. The event was after a interval of 10 days of relative calm and was like in almost all important features such as fountains, intense emission of ash and small Lavastones, and lava flowed toward the Valle del Bove, the previous one.

Already after 3 hours it was all over.

In den späten Abendstunden des 23. April 2012 ist wieder
einmal zu einer kurzen Aktivität des “Neuen Süd-Ost Kraters” gegeben. Die 25. in Folge seit Januar 2011 und die 7. im laufendem Jahr. Wieder mit einem Abstand ca. 10-14 Tagen und glich allen vorausgegangenen an Intensität und Ablauf mit Lavafontäne  und Lavafluss sowie Aschenregen. (Sie unten weitere Ausbrüche 2012 oder im Archiv 2011). Auch diesmal gab es zu keiner Zeit Gefahr für die Bevölkerung oder Schäden.
