  • Description

    Two earth tremors rocked the small town of Zafferana, on the slopes of Mount Etna, July 25 and many of the 6,000 population dashed terrified into the streets - many of them in night-clothes. First reports said there no casualties, only slight damage to houses. Our camera shows the eruption of Etna July 20 when, after a terrific roar, it emitted great clouds of white smoke and flames were visible for 100 miles. It was the second eruption in three days.

    Zafferana is on the eastern slopes of the volcano, about 2,000 feet above sea level. Two more tremors shook the town later July 25 and caused minor landslides.
