Hogres destruidos por la lava en una ciudad de Islandia

By Jordi Bou

January 15, 2024 - La lava fluyó hacia las casas en la ciudad de Grindavik después que un volcán enl a península Reykjanes hizo erupción por segunda vez en menos de un mes

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.
