A long-dormant volcano erupted in Iceland on Friday near Reykjavik.
The eruption near the capital came after, according to Reuters, “thousands of small earthquakes” in the past few weeks.
Volcanic #eruption began tonight near Fagradalsfjall on #Reykjanes peninsula, close to Reykjavík and Keflavík airport. Lives and homes are not in danger and disruption of flights unlikely. Still, we need to be careful and vigilant.
