Stromboli Volcano Erupts a Second Time in 2 Months

The Stromboli volcano erupted for the second time in two months, showering ash and rock around it and causing brush fires.
 
The Stromboli volcano located off the coast of southern Italy, exploded early on August 28. No casualties or damages were reported.
 
The same volcano exploded on July 3, killing one hiker and covering the area in ash. The Stromboli volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
 
Earlier this week, officials noted an increase in smaller eruptions, The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology called the most recent eruption one of “high intensity.”
 
Officials have closed the island to private boats for a few hours as a precaution.
