Etna is a volcano in Italy. It is the most active volcano in Europe. It is the tallest volcano in Europe, too.

Etna erupts. It sends a lot of smoke and lava. Planes cannot fly near Etna. It is not safe for the planes. People on the ground are safe. They don’t like the smoke from Etna.

Etna erupts for the 14th time in 2013. It sends smoke often, but it is safe.

Difficult words: active (it does something), erupt (send lava and smoke), lava (very hot thing that goes from the volcano).
