TWO earthquakes have struck off the coast of Sicily, where the potentially catastrophic Mount Etna – Europe’s largest active volcano – is located.
The first came yesterday at 7.22 PM when a magnitude 2.4 rumbled while a 3.2 tremor was recorded in the early hours of this morning at 1.14 am.
While most of the earthquakes were relatively weak, they all came at a shallow depth which can cause more damage than deeper earthquakes.
Mount Etna is a volcano which is constantly murmuring. According to volcanic trackers at Volcano Discovery, the volcano is currently undergoing a state of eruption.
