Volcano Dormant For 6,000 Years, Blows Up Near Reykjavik, Iceland

A volcano dormant for about 6,000 years blew up not very far from Reykjavik, Iceland. Though it was a small eruption and currently is not a threat to the neighbouring towns, but the citizens are advised to be careful. The volcano was spewing out flames (about as high as 110 yards) and lava which was considered to be about 1,600 feet long. The glow could be seen from Reykjavik which is 20 miles away from the volcano.

By God’s grace, the volcano eruption took place in an isolated valley. Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir tweeted, “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.”
