A volcano in southwest Iceland has begun erupting in an uninhabited valley positioned not removed from Keflavik Airport, the nation’s worldwide air visitors hub.
The Icelandic Meteorological Office urged individuals to not go near the Fagradalsfjall volcano, which is positioned some 32km (20 miles) southwest of the capital, Reykjavik.
People on Wednesday gathered to look at the dramatic pure spectacle unfold, which occurred simply eight months after the volcano’s final eruption formally ended.
“It’s just crazy,” photographer Gunnar Freyr stated after witnessing the eruption. “I thought the eruption was going to happen, maybe like in a few weeks and now it’s here and it is so beautiful.”
Keflavik Airport remained open and no flights had been disrupted.
