Erupção vulcânica na península de Reykjanes na Islândia

December 19, 2023 - Ocorreu uma erupção vulcânica ao final de segunda-feira no sudoeste da Islândia, lançando lava e fumo numa ampla área ao de semanas de intensa atividade sísmica.

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.
