Mount Fagradalsfjall Erupts in Iceland

Mount Fagradalsfjall in Geldingadalur had been dormant for 6,000 years until March 19, 2021. It's was the first eruption in the Reykjanes Peninsula for 781 years. The eruptions began on after thousands of small earthquakes in the area southwest of Reykjavík. As of March 28, Fagradalsfjall had produced more than 10 million square feet of lava, with some plumes soaring 300ft into the air.

Iceland's prime minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir previously told locals to stay away from the volcano. He tweeted: "A volcanic eruption has begun in Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes peninsula. We are monitoring the situation closely and as of now it is not considered a threat to surrounding towns. We ask people to keep away from the immediate area and stay safe."

The site was initially blocked off to tourists - yet as of yesterday, people were allowed to venture up towards the spewing volcano.
