Lava spews as Italy's Stromboli volcano erupts

Huge plumes of smoke billowed off Stromboli's volcano as it erupted on Sunday, 9 October, as lava spewed towards the sea on the Italian island.A lava overflow in the central sector of the volcano's crater area "caused the collapse of a portion of the crater rim which gave rise to a pyroclastic flow" at 9:22am local time, according to Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.Source: Steven H, Twitter
