Hadn't seen this, but looks like it's been going on for a while. Surprised there hasn't been a thread already actually.

Seems they don't expect any risk to local towns.

Luckily no one seems to be in danger.

But how cool are volcanos (no smart answers please :p). They're both kings of destruction but then also builders of land. Impressive things

We just need that volcano in Iceland to kick off again and stop all the flights just as the summer opens things up :p

Actually gone pretty quiet in Iceland lately on that front - some low level earthquake swarms in Reykjanes area which probably leads to an eruption eventually but no signs of anything imminent - the rest are pretty quiet.

The head of Geophysics and Vulcanology for the region said "We've seen worse" apparently so doesn't look like they're too worried.
