Vulkanausbruch auf Islands Reykjanes Halbinsel

December 19, 2023 - Vulkanausbruch spät am Abend von Montag im südwestlichen Island. Der Vulkan speit Lava und Rauch über einem großes Gebiet aus, nachdem schon wochenlang intensive Erdbeben die Gegend erschütterten.

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.
