Scientists were keeping a close watch on Mount Etna after a series of minor eruptions on the Sicilian volcano.

Hot ash and gas spewed from one of the main craters early Wednesday, forming a cloud that stretched for more than 6-1/2 miles. Smaller eruptions followed.

In the small town of Aci-San Antonio, a layer of lava ash cloaked cars and roads.

The last major eruption of Etna was May 1992.
