Gaseous pollution from Vogar to Borgarfjörður

Gaseous pollution from Vogar to Borgarfjörður

According to information from the Icelandic Meteorological Institute, it is possible that gaseous pollution from the Fagradalsfjall eruption will spread today from Vogar towards Borgarfjörður and Borgarnes.

Due to the southerly winds forecast today, pollution is likely to be greatest over Vogar later in the day. Residents of Borgarnes and Borgarfjörður may also experience sulfur dioxide pollution.

It is unlikely that you will need to limit your outdoor activities, but sensitive individuals may experience nasal, mouth or throat discomfort.

The Environment Agency’s air quality meter in Vogar is broken and therefore does not show measurements from this area.
