Häuser der isländischen Stadt werden von heißer Lava zerstört

By Jordi Bou

January 15, 2024 - Lava fließt in die Häuser der isländischen Stadt Grindavik, nachdem ein Vulkan auf der Reykjanes Halbinsel ausgebrochen ist, bereits zum zweiten Mal in weniger als einem Monat.

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.
