Published on

Mount Etna located on the east coast of Sicily is classified as a stratovolcano and is the tallest active volcano in Europe at 3,329 m (10,922 ft). It remains one of the most active and dangerous volcanoes in the world. A major eruption of Etna and other volcanoes close to large cities such as Messina and Catania would be devastating to people, property, infrastructure, the environment, and the global economy.
