Thus, now happens already fifth eruption for 4 days. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35019861
Possible , we are moving to the level of Etna activity similar on 2000 year , wich accounts, as i remember, 66 eruptions.
This is not quite correct info, and here is a comparison of the current activity of Etna with 2000 year made by expert

This is not the first time that Etna is in such a frenzy. In the year 2000, the "big brother" of the New Southeast Crater, then a healthy youngster (I'm speaking of the old Southeast Crater), awoke after a few months of quiescence on 26 January and made its first paroxysm in a series that would eventually count 66 (sixty-six) events by late-August. At first, the paroxysms came at intervals of a couple days: 26 January, 29 January, 1 February ... and then the thing accelerated in a bewildering manner. By the end of February 2000 the count stood at 38, some days had seen up to three paroxysms. So indeed, what is going on now is not all that exceptional.
One difference, though, there is. The lava fountains (paroxysms) of 2000 rarely lasted longer than 10-15 minutes each time. Those of 2011-2012 and again now each last some 45-60 minutes, so they are indeed bigger. This is quite evident from the fact that the cone of the New Southeast Crater has grown faster than its "big brother", and it seems it is vigorously growing again with the new paroxysms.
