Volcanic Eruption Rattles Iceland Anew

An Icelandic volcano has spewed lava within 500 meters of homes in the town of Grindavik, just weeks after residents were allowed to return to their homes following a major eruption, as reported by Perkin Amalaraj for the UK’s Daily Mail.

Video footage shows that an eruption took place at 7:57 a.m. local time, with magma, smoke, and ash spurting high into the sky above the town of Grindavik, 25 miles away from Iceland's capital Reykjavik.

The fissure grew many times its initial size within just 30 minutes, meteorologists reported. Geologist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson told local media that the crack is currently a kilometer (3,280 ft) long, adding that he wasn't certain when it would stop growing.

Pictures show the lava slowly creeping towards the fishing town, with officials saying that the flow is just 500 meters (1,500 ft) away from hitting the northernmost buildings. Iceland's president, Gudni Johannesson, said in a post to X: “No lives are in danger, although infrastructure may be under threat.”
