After a series of earthquakes in Iceland, a high volcano erupted in Fagradalsfjall on Friday night. Located about 25 miles[40 km]outside Reykjavík, the nearest city and capital, it has not threatened the lives of people or damaged infrastructure.
“Currently, air pollution is not expected to cause much harm to people except near the eruption site,” he said. he wrote Icelandic Weather Office this morning. “Ventilation is carefully monitored.”
Pictures of the eruption filled the living room as Icelanders saw lava and ashes from the eruption looking up at the sky.
The country’s judiciary, Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir, went on a rampage as the eruption began to assess the situation. Sigurbjörnsdóttir posted pictures with live video from a helicopter that shows volcanic eruptions from the blast.
The local Ruv shopping mall is also mountain food.
Residents of Reykjavík posted pictures showing a red light in the sky showing Fagradalsfjall exploding.
