It is raining rocks in Sicily.

Italian volcano Mt Etna, which erupted last weekend, caused a flurry of ash and rocks to rain on parts of the island, reported weather.aol.com.

Mt Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, on the east coast of Sicily, erupted twice in less than a week.

The eruptions did not force evacuations, though part of a highway was temporarily closed.

Airspace over the mountain was closed, and the eruption illuminated the sky, reported Christian Science Monitor.
 
However it was not enough to shut down the airport at Catania, a city of 300,000 people to the south of the volcano’s peak.
