A massive column of smoke has been filmed towering over a village on the slopes of Mount Etna as the volcano erupted.
The unsettling footage was taken this morning (December 24) in Fornazzo, a small town frighteningly close to Etna’s mouth, by Nicola Amalfi.
It shows a column of grey and yellow smoke slowly erupting from the mount’s peak to loom over the nearby houses and trees, almost covering up the entire sky.
As the camera angle is switched you see the smoke creating an arch over the village as the wind bends it eastward.
