Volcano erupts in South Iceland

IceNews – After weeks of small earthquakes in the area, the Fimmvorduhals volcano near the Eyjafjallajokull glacier has finally erupted, causing disruption to flights and a spate of evacuations. The volcano is sending a plume of ash and smoke in a westerly and north westerly direction due to easterly winds. The amount of ash being generated appears to have peaked between 07.00 and 08.00 this morning, according to volcanologists. The molten lava has created a 500m-1km rift in the snow and the large majority of the lava flow is to the west with the rest flowing down the slope to the east.
