Iceland volcano: Lava cascades down slopes after thousands of small earthquakes in recent weeks

8/06/2021 को प्रकाशित
Lava cascaded down a volcano near Iceland's capital of Reykjavik on Friday after thousands of small earthquakes were felt in the region in recent weeks.

The eruption occurred near Fagradalsfjall, a mountain on the Reykjanes Peninsula, southwest of the capital. About four hours after the eruption, the first on the peninsula since the 12th century, lava covered about one square kilometre, or nearly 200 football fields.

INplansr Jon Bear captured the huge volumes cascading down the mountain and said on Friday that it was the last day the eruption site could be accessed for filming. The area is now blocked off by streams of cooled, black lava.

  • A little late, It's been gushing since March 19th! This was the 5th spout of 7 eruptions on a fault line. The others stopped but #5 grew out of the flat ground into the mountain of lava it is now. Geology in real time!
