The volcano that sits beneath the Eyjafjallajökull (glacier) has started to erupt.
Which is interesting since it appears that it’s emanating from Fimmvörðuháls; the col that we crossed on the last day of the Iceland walk (pictured above).
Apparently the “What to do if there’s an eruption” signs were well worth reading after all.
Others are more sensationalist of course and no better pictures that we could find for the moment.
The fact that it’s coming from the col rather than actually beneath the Eyjafjallajökull is good news for Iceland since it’s less likely to cause massive flooding.
Still, if the dreadful, derelict old hut near the col is destroyed that will be no great loss! I just hope the new one survives…
