The Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) reported that volcanic eruptions occurred Monday about 20 miles from the capital city of Reykjavik. The eruptions occurred following a period of seismic activity in the vicinity.

Magns Tumi Gumundsson, a geophysics professor at the University of Iceland, stated, “This is a much bigger eruption, even ten times bigger than the first eruption, and possibly three times bigger than eruption number two.”

Voyagers were cautioned to avoid the region in view of the contamination and anybody occupying the region is being asked to leave, said Hjördís Guðmundsdóttir, Correspondences Overseer of the Common Protection in Iceland.

A fissure that extended between 600 and 800 yards erupted in March 2021, causing the area to be covered in lava fountains.

Why is there a lot of volcanic activity in Iceland?
Iceland encounters continuous volcanic action because of its one of a kind land position. The country is at the intersection of a powerful mantle plume that is creating a hot spot on the surface and a spreading plate boundary on the Mid-Atlantic Ocean ridge. These powerful powers cooperate to produce a lot of magma, which fills the holes in the covering made by the spreading plates. Accordingly, ejections happen as often as possible along the break zone.
