Iceland: Volcano Erupts In Reykjanes Peninsula

volcano erupted in Iceland's Reykjanes Peninsula

A volcano erupted in Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, prompting the evacuation of Blue Lagoon and the nearby town of Grindavik, CNN reported citing Iceland’s public broadcaster RUV.

Lava appeared to be flowing rapidly towards the north of Grindavik, just like it did during the volcanic eruption on February 8, according to the Icelandic Met Office, CNN reported, citing RUV report.

Icelandic Met Office said, “The fissure is about three kilometres long, and runs from Stora-Skogfell towards Hagafell.”

The Blue Lagoon, located just an hour’s drive from Iceland’s capital Reykjavik, is one of the country’s most popular tourist destination.

The site is part of southwest Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, which is also home to the country’s main airport, Keflavik International.

Iceland is one of the most active volcanic areas on the planet. Instead of having a central volcano, the Reykjanes Peninsula is dominated by a rift valley, with lava fields and cones, CNN reported.

Earlier, in March, the lagoon was evacuated due to seismic activity, the report said. Earlier, in November, the lagoon was closed for a week after 1400 earthquakes were recorded in 24 hours. (ANI)
