Watch out below: it’s raining rocks in Sicily

It’s raining rocks in Sicily! This extraordinary video shows what happens when a volcano erupts and lava ash and stones blanket the region. The volcano, of course, is Mount Etna, which is Europe’s most active volcano. Surprisingly, this eruption didn’t force any kind of evacuation, but a highway was closed for half an hour and two of four air corridors were briefly closed. Mount Etna “erupts occasionally” and the last major eruption was back in 1992. And you thought your weather was bad!
