• Warning

    Fissure eruption in Holuhraun (north of Vatnajökull).
  • Warning

    E-erly winds are blowing over Iceland and the polluted area is thus expected to reach west of the eruption site, marked by Hofsjökull glacier in the west and Skagafjörður-bay in the north. Habitants of Westfjords-area have reported haze, possibly originating from the eruption. Tomorrow the pollution area is expected to move south and reach over the central highlands west and southwest of the eruption site. A larger pollution area cannot be ruled out. Valid until midnight tomorrow, Thursday. More
