Iceland volcano erupts for 4th time since December, spewing smoke and lava

WNews 1 Min Read

A volcano in Iceland erupted for the fourth time since December on Saturday, the country’s meteorological office said, spewing smoke and bright orange lava into the air in sharp contrast against the dark night sky.

Livestreams from the area showed fountains of molten rock soaring from fissures in the ground after authorities had warned for weeks that an eruption was imminent on the Reykjanes peninsula, just south of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik.

“Warning: An eruption began in Reykjanes,” the Icelandic Meteorological Office said on its website. The website for Reykjavik’s Keflavik Airport showed it remained open both for departures and arrivals.
