Etna is Europe’s most active volcano erupting occasionally. Its last major eruption occurred in 1992.

The eruption Saturday did not force any evacuations, but a highway was closed for half an hour as a precaution. Italian authorities also briefly closed two of four air corridors serving the nearby Catania airport but air traffic was not interrupted.
