A volcano on the Italian island of Stromboli erupted on Wednesday, releasing hot trapped magma in a powerful explosion, killing one person and enveloping the popular tourist destination in ash.

The news agency ANSA says that some 30 tourists jumped into the sea out of fear after a series of volcano erupted on the Sicilian island of Stromboli.

Civil protection authorities said a hiker was killed during the eruptions on Wednesday (Thursday NZT).

Italian media reported that tourists had fled the island's coastal area after the eruption.

A navy boat has been sent to the 12 square kilometer (5 square miles) island for a possible mass evacuation, with 70 inhabitants and tourists already evacuated.

Meanwhile, firefighters battled blazes sparked by the explosions in different areas of the island. Then we saw streams of red-hot lava running towards the small village of Ginostra.

"The cloud got bigger, white and gray".

"It's been a long time since we had an eruption of this magnitude", former local councillor Gianluca Giuffre told RAI news.

"The cloud continues to spread across the sky and Stromboli has disappeared from view". "There was a loud roar. we plugged our ears and after this a cloud of ash swept over us".

Images on social media show large clouds of smoke filling the sky with several fires burning visibly through hazy, ash-filled air covering the island just north of the boot of Italy. On Wednesday, Stromboli was hit by a set of violent eruptions spurring beach tourists to take to the sea. It was not clear if anyone was on the crater at the time of the blast.

According to National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology expert Stefano Branca, high-pressure magma exploded from a shallow, underground reservoir, which resulted in the ensuing volcanic eruption.

The island was the setting for a 1950 movie starring Ingrid Bergman and, with other islands in the Aeolian archipelago, has become a favourite location in recent decades for holiday homes for the rich and famous. Its volcano is known to be one of the most active in Italy, with regular minor eruptions.
