Etna is the highest volcano in Europe at 3,330 metres and has burst into life several times each year.
A series of hearth quakes hit Sicily October 29, 2002 as nearby Mount Etna spewed lava and ash for a third day.
The volcanic eruptions began yesterday, treating citizens and vacationers alike to a spectacular pyrotechnic display.
The activity was captured by a drone camera on Tuesday (February 28) with footage showing streams of lava running down the volcano into the snow.

In return for the matching funds, states must meet certain requirements for coverage set by the federal government. Other GOP governors, including Rick Scott of Florida, have advocated a full repeal of the law.
The volcano send giant orange fountains of lava spewing towards the sky - and it could be seen in the city of Catania and the resort town of Taormina.
The eruption took place at the south-east crater, and authorities say it now does not present a danger to people or property. The last time Etna erupted was on May 21, 2016.
During that eruption, Europe's Mt. Etna threatened to overtake a Sicilian village with its flowing lava. Scientists are tracking the activities of the volcano and the ash cloud. According to USA Today, Mount Etna also has the "longest documented eruption history of any volcano in the world".
