It seems as if it is never satisfied with what it has and wants more! In fact, it has not only one crater but five … and it is not sure that it has stopped here.
Etna had got us well used to this, recently! Between 2014 and 2016, fast eruptions followed one another every three months or so, with spectacular fountains of fire that attracted crowds of tourists from all over Europe. All this ended suddenly in April 2017 when the last eruption was no longer followed by other events … for over a year!
