So I leave the country for four days, and what happens? An eruption happens!
As I mentioned about three weeks ago, Eyjafjallajökull glacier has been threatening to erupt for a while now, but the tremors seemed to be dying down, if anything.
For those concerned that this might be near us [thanks Andrew!] — never fear, it’s about 150 km east of Reykjavík. However, they are evacuating farms in the vicinity and from what I understand they’ve also closed a large area around the eruption, including places like Vík.
RÚV has a live report with webcam shots of the eruption here.
Still in Stockholm — will try to post more later today.
