STORY: Grindavik resident Hrannar Jon Emilsson advised Icelandic media there had been an evacuation order in November over fears of an imminent eruption, which had disrupted his plan to maneuver in into the home he was constructing earlier than Christmas.

However virtually a month later, Emilsson watched his house go “up in smoke”.

Molten lava flows reached the outskirts of Grindavik round midday on Sunday, though the city had been evacuated earlier and there was no rapid hazard to folks.

The crack within the earth’s floor that opened near Grindavik on Sunday was now not lively on Monday, and lava manufacturing from the bigger fissure north of the city was reducing, a vulcanologist advised Reuters.

GPS measurements confirmed that magma continued to maneuver in a southern space of the hall beneath the city, the Metrological Workplace mentioned, including that new cracks may seem inside Grindavik within the subsequent few days.

It was the second eruption on the peninsula of Reykjanes in 4 weeks and the fifth since 2021.
