Many experts say that the Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland is nearing a “massive eruption”.

They say it may only have taken days before magma cracked the Earth’s crust.

– It will erupt, says volcanologist Orvaldar Lorarsson to the Icelandic newspaper mask.

– Prepare yourselves

The volcano is located 40 kilometers from Reykjavík and the eruption could have severe consequences for air traffic in the area.

– It’s not a good idea to be near steep cliffs now, says Benedict Gunnar Övegson, a tectonics expert at the Icelandic Meteorological Service (IMO)

The International Maritime Organization raised the air traffic warning from the green level to the orange level.

It encourages Icelanders and tourists in Iceland to prepare for earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Several earthquakes in the area

Earthquakes have been recorded in Keilir, Fagradalsfjall and Eldey.

Since Tuesday, about 8,000 earthquakes have been recorded in Reykanişalvoya. The largest of them measured 4.8 on the Richter scale, he writes RÚV.

Seismic activity has now decreased significantly, but of course that’s not a good thing, according to Þórðarson.

– The tremors have subsided. This pattern is perfectly consistent with what happened before the volcanic eruptions in 2021 and 2022, the volcanologist says.
