CATANIA, Sicily — Mount Etna, the largest of Italy's three active volcanoes, is spewing ash and lava once again, but officials say the activity is taking place at its summit and does not pose a risk to people and towns.

Etna began a new phase of eruptions on Thursday as two new cracks in the volcano opened up, sending lava down its flank.

Newborn Hawaii beach is already polluted with tiny pieces of plastic “There's this romantic idea of the remote tropical beach, clean and pristine…. That kind of beach doesn't exist anymore.” Plastic, including microplastics, has washed ashore on some of the world’s most remote beaches, uninhabited by humans. Scientists have often likened the current state of the ocean to a plastic soup. Microplastics are so prolific that they rain down from the sky in remote mountain locations and turn up in most of our table salt. It's still unclear how this excess of plastic will affect marine ecosystems, but scientists suspect it may have dangerous consequences for wildlife and human health.

The volcano previously erupted in December. That eruption was linked to an earthquake which caused injuries and extensive damage to buildings on and near the volcano's slopes.

Eugenio Privitera, the director in Catania of Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, says this eruption is taking place at Etna's summit and does not pose risks to residents. But he says visitors to Etna must stay away from the summit for their own safety.
