April 5th, local time, a new volcanic eruption crack appeared 1,000 meters near the crater of Geldingadalur in Iceland. At that time, there were about hundreds of people near the eruption site, and the authorities immediately asked tourists to evacuate the area.
Recently, on the Reykjanes Peninsula of Iceland, the volcano Fagradar, Iceland, which has been silent for 6,000 years, has erupted. A large number of people came to watch the spectacular scene of lava eruption.
It is reported that the new crack was originally discovered by helicopters. The crack is about 500 meters long and actually consists of two cracks, one big and one small. According to the University of Iceland, the lava ejected along the cracks has a large flow and a rapid flow, spreading eastward.
According to the report, the site will not pose personal danger because it is a certain distance from the hiking trails frequented by tourists. The Icelandic Meteorological Service said that the new volcanic activity is not expected to affect the traffic at the nearby Kevlavik airport.
Icelandic geophysicists say the emergence of new cracks may cause the eruption site of the volcano to move north from the original location.” We are now seeing a reduction in lava from two original craters,” “this may be the beginning of the second phase”.
In the week of early March, more than 10,000 earthquakes occurred on the Reykjanes Peninsula in southwest Iceland. Icelandic authorities have said that a small volcanic eruption may be imminent on the Reykjanes Peninsula.
