Mount Etna, situated on the Italian island of Sicily, has erupted for the second time this year, amid a period of significant volcanic activity in the area, scientists report.

The eruption has led to the deposition of volcanic stones and ash over the city of Taormina and other areas along the eastern coast of Sicily.

The Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology reported in August that the crater of Mount Etna had risen in height after six months of activity.

This led to its classification as "Europe's largest active volcano," according to the news agency Sputnik.

In 1981, the northeast crater of Mount Etna reached a record height of 3,350 meters. However, subsequent collapses of its edges reduced its height to 3,326 meters by 2018.
