Iceland Volcano Eruption [Video]
The Iceland volcano eruption happened yesterday night. (CBC.ca) The eruption is said to be the first for the volcano in more than 1,000 years. Lava apparently sputtered from 15 different places, according to the Icelandic Red Cross. Three evacuee assistance centers have been set up by the organization, though the damage and risk of further problems is small.
“The eruption is conveniently located,” said Hrafnhildur Stefansdottir, a spokeswoman for the Icelandic Coast Guard, which is monitoring the situation. “An eruption underneath the glacier itself might have caused floods which would be cause for concern. There is no immediate danger for people and due to how remote the place is there are no buildings at immediate risk either.”
