Volcano Eruption in Iceland Again, Fourth Time Since December

4 months ago

The Reykjanes Peninsula experienced its fourth volcano eruption in Iceland in just four months on Saturday, March 16th, 2024.

The volcano spewed smoke and lava into the air, prompting concerns for nearby infrastructure and residents.

Last Minute Warning

Authorities had warned of an imminent eruption due to accumulating magma underground, but the short warning time of only 15 minutes before the event underscored the unpredictable nature of volcanic activity.

Fortunately, the incident mirrored the previous one in February, volcano erupting with lava flowing from a similar fissure near Reykjavik. This allowed for pre-emptive measures to be effective.
