Mount Etna’s Eruption Causes It To Rain Rocks In Sicily

Would an umbrella even be enough protection for this? Maybe just stay inside?

Mount Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, has erupted again. Though the eruption wasn’t serious enough to merit any evacuation, there were a few road closures – oh, and that pesky issue of it’s raining rocks and volcanic ash from the sky now.
