Footage shows smoke and lava flows from erupting Mt Etna

Eruptions from Italy's Mt Etna triggered a 4.8 magnitude earthquake on the east coast of Sicily on Wednesday.

This footage shows the active volcano.

According to media, the earthquake jolted the island at 3:19 am, injuring at least 10 people and prompting villagers to flee their homes. The quake opened up cracks in homes in several towns, sending chunks of concrete debris tumbling to the ground.

Etna, the largest of Italy's three active volcanoes, has been particularly active since July. In recent days, a new fracture has opened near Etna's southeast crater and lava has been flowing down an uninhabited slope.
