ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Burning hot red lava flowed down the side of Mount Etna on Monday (March 27), in the latest spectacular show from Europe's most active volcano. Volcanologists have been using new technologies such as drones and GPS to study the latest activity following a series of recent eruptions. The volcano sprung to life on February 28 with repeated explosions that sent lava flying in to the air. A few weeks later on March 16, ten people were injured when magma hit snow causing an eruption that sent stones and rocks flying. Etna, at 3,330 meters (10,926 feet), is the highest volcano in mainland Europe and can burst into action several times a year. The last major eruption was in 1992.
