ثوران بركاني في جنوب غرب أيسلندا

December 19, 2023 - ثار بركان في شبه جزيرة ريكيانيس في أيسلندا بعد أسابيع من النشاط الزلزالي المكثف.

The eruption on the Reykjanes peninsula started late on Monday about 4km northeast of the fishing town of Grindavik.

Authorities last month evacuated the nearly 4,000 inhabitants of the town and closed the nearby Blue Lagoon geothermal spa.

Lava from the eruption appeared to flow away from Grindavik, offering hope that homes would be spared, geologists and rescue officials said on Tuesday, according to Reuters.
