1928 Eruption

An eruption began at Mt Etna on 2nd November 1928 with a vent opening at 2900 m elevation on NE flank of the volcano. On 3rd November a vent opened between about 2,200 and 1,550 m on the Serra delle Concazze, and more vents opened on 4th November along the Ripa della Naca fault at 1,200 m. On the 6th November lava entered the town of Mascali, situated at the foot of the volcano, at only 100 m, and by 7th November the town was mostly destroyed. This was the most damaging eruption of Etna since the devastation of Catania in 1669.
