New data reviewed by scientists in Iceland now show strong signs that an eruption may be on the way, RÚV reports.
As things stand now, there are signs of unrest just south of Keilir that are usually indicative of an eruption. Kristín Jónsdóttir from the Icelandic Meteorological Office reported reporters that while they are not publicly saying that an eruption is about to begin, there is very strong evidence that it will happen.
As reported, if the magma reaches the surface, it will be an unlikely explosion of lava and ash, but a fissure opening, where lava pours from a fissure made on the earth’s surface.
However, it could mean a disruption to air traffic to and from Keflavík Airport and the area has now been lifted from yellow to an orange warning.
More updates will be provided as they happen.
