Locals Link Bubbling Mud to Activity at Mount Etna

Bubbling mud was reported near Paternò, at the foot of Mount Etna, as activity at the volcano resumed on March 15, 2017.

Locals linked the phenomenon to the volcanic activity but geologists disputed that the mud flow could be used to predict eruptions, according to a National Geographic report.

The area of Cappuccini di Paternò regularly sees such activity, known as “salinelle,” according to local reports. Credit: YouTube/MeridioNews via Storyful
