الحمم البركانية تدمر منازل بلدة في أيسلندا

By Jordi Bou

January 15, 2024 - تدفقت الحمم البركانية إلى المنازل في بلدة غريندافيك بعد ثوران بركان في شبه جزيرة ريكيانيس للمرة الثانية في أقل من شهر.

A crack in the earth's surface opened in the early hours of Sunday, spilling lava into the fishing town.

Lava flows appeared to be slowing, authorities said Monday, despite indications that magma is still flowing underground.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) said the barriers had been breached in some places, allowing lava to reach the town and then set houses and buildings on fire.

Residents of Grindavik, a town of some 4,000 people before it was evacuated in November, said it was difficult to watch televised images of the fires.
