Etna's first eruption of 2013 was certainly impressive - …repubblica.it/edizione/…

It was even on the Dutch news, they were talking about the ash which causes problems. Hope you (and your laundry ;)) are doing well!

Etna certainly has been active to have experienced three eruptive episodes in less than 36 hours – Truly spectacular!!!

Having been reading about the eruption, I wondered if it is likely to affects flights in and out of Catania at all? We are due to fly there in three weeks' time, and I am remembering the way people were stranded across the Atlantic when that Icelandic volcano spewed out smoke two or three years ago.

So far, not an issue, but you can never predict - Follow updates....

Of more immediate concern is the recent flooding in Catania.

My goodness, Vagabonda!

I never thought this first visit to Sicily would be so exciting...

Thank you so much for the links, which will be very useful.

The floods sound awful. What a relief no lives have been lost.
