Iceland’s Volcano Erupts Near the Capital

Don't forget to like and share! 🙂

A 6,000-year-old dormant volcano, named Fagradalsfjall, lit up the Friday evening sky with an eruption on March 20 2021.  Recent weeks showed seismic activity leading up to the small eruption near Iceland’s Capital, Reykjavik, predicting a coming volcano eruption.

The eruption was small and proved no intimate danger unlike Iceland’s eruption in 2010 of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Because of the little to no threat, many people are driving up to see the natural event taking place causing unusual traffic. 

Katrín Jakobsdóttir, Prime Minister of Iceland, tweets, “A volcanic eruption has begun in Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes peninsula. We are monitoring the situation closely and as of now it is not considered a threat to surrounding towns. We ask people to keep away from the immediate area and stay safe.” 

Volcanic activity has decreased with a lava output being weak. However, with decreasing activity, there are still sites live streaming the event.
