Much depends on the direction of the wind.

It looks like the pond may get a little wider then . . .

If this happens they'll have to stop all international air travel... oh no wait... :)

Meanwhile I have Mount Etna blowing up right across the Strait. They just upgraded the alert level from "Don't worry!" to "OK, maybe worry a bit..."

Well, previously after an eruption in Iceland, there were travel interruptions along with rerouting of aircraft.

Depending upon the size and type of the eruption, there can be worldwide effects.

Have you been able to see any smoke from Etna? I know your a bit far away and I don't know the prevailing winds.


Sometimes, during other eruptions, but not during this one (the biggest smoke cloud I ever saw was during the 2002-2003 eruption; the sky was literally gray and ash was falling everywhere in Southern Italy(*)). Some friends told me that, during this one, they were able to see the volcano illuminating the sky at night, on the SW, but I missed it.

Prevailing winds in my area (and the Strait of Messina general area) are anything but "prevailing". It is always a bit crazy, as you can see here:

Historically the eruptions around Reykjavik are effusive in nature (mostly basaltic lava similar to Hawaii).

IIRC, Mount Etna is effusive in nature - with some real light show and jumps caused by bombs, earthquakes and other funny phenomena. Occasionally buildings are damaged - exp. illegally built ones...

(*) Fun fact for Star Wars fans: George Lucas was shooting some scenes for the Prequels here in Italy when Etna seized up in 2002-2003, so he sent a team there to shoot some footage. He later used it for the lava-planet Mustafar in "Revenge of the Sith".
