Dire consequences from Etna movement, even effecting Malta

The volcano closest to the Maltese Islands is coming down, according to what experts have stated in a study published on Science Advances.

According to the experts, Etna is moving closer to the sea at the rate of three centimetres per year.

This phenomenon has been under observation for the past years, and experts are of the opinion all this is the result of gravity.

Once the volcano collapses, experts are warning of dire consequences on the surrounding area, among which a tsunami which may hit several countries and endanger small islands like Malta, Lampedusa and Sicily itself.

The Sicilian volcano is one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and has been gravitationally moving towrds the sea for the past 30 years.

Experts don’t know when the volcano will eventually come down – it can happen within a few years or not before thousnds of years.

Needless to say, the scientists will continue to monitor the volcano’s movements.
