Lava spews from Mount Etna on August 6 during the latest eruption of the Italian volcano, the tallest and most active in Europe.
Since early July the Sicilian volcano has been erupting off and on, with some explosions shooting flames 75 stories into the air, according to CBS News.
Despite concerns ash could snarl flights in the area, winds have so far blown the ash away from the airport, toward the Ionian Sea, the BBC reported.
