Volcanic eruption in Iceland: Business as usual at Leirubakki!

A volcanic erupti­on has now  started near Bárðarbunga in the highlands in central Iceland. The erupti­on is a lava erupti­on and it is not a threat to anyone at this stage and it has not affected any flights nor have any airports been closed.  This is far away from Hotel Leirubakki and here is the business as usual, all roads open to Mt Hekla, Veidivotn and Landmannalaugar.

The erupti­on has been con­fir­med by scient­ists in the field as being rather small. The rat­her small low frequ­ency tremor sug­gests the erupti­on is loca­ted outsi­de the glacier.

The cra­ter is believed to be 1 ki­lometer long rift be­ar­ing NA-SV. No jök­ul­hlaup has been detected; the erupti­on is not sub-glacial.
