Etna (Sicily, Italy): (20 Mar) Towards the end of the second eruption of Etna in 2017 (15-20 March), an unusual phenomenon occurred: the lower lava flow, originating from the 2900 m fissure vent at the base of the SE crater and descending into the Valle del Bove from its western rim at 2500 m elevation, produced a series of small to moderate pyroclastic flows, associated with dense ash plumes. These gravity-driven turbulent currents of ash, larger fragments, air and hot gasses were caused when parts of the flow front collapsed on the steep, unstable terrain in combination probably with interaction between patches of snow still present. Emanuela and Roland visited the volcano on 18 March and sent us the following series of photos:
