    Volcano causes Iceland to issue red alert to aviation

    Iceland has issued a red alert to aviation because it looks like there may have been an eruption under the country's biggest glacier, the Vattnajokull. Seismic activity is now happening in the large Bardarbunga volcano that's about 18 miles (30km) away. Several hundred people have been evacuated. A volcanic eruption in Iceland in 2010 caused worldwide disruption to air travel and huge losses to the airline industry.

    'Iceland closed airspace directly above Bardarbunga volcano yesterday after it began erupting under the ice of Europe's largest glacier following thousands of earthquakes over the past week.'

    'A Virgin Atlantic spokesman said a flight from London Heathrow to San Francisco was rerouted away from the volcano as a "precautionary measure" but flights are now operating as normal.'

    Experts are uncertain if the eruption will 'remain sub-glacial' or not.

    Some Icelandic experts are downplaying fears of a big eruption, but another geophysicist has just warned of the danger to planes flying over.

    'During three hours of aerial surveillance, there were no obvious signs of volcanic activity.
    In light of the intense, ongoing earthquake activity and crustal deformation at Bįršarbunga, the Icelandic Meteorological Office has decided that the aviation color-code should remain ‘red’. The situation will be reassessed tomorrow morning.'

    There is supposed to be live streaming of the volcano at the link, but because of my location rights issues means I can't watch. Maybe others can though.

    There was a 5.5 mag earthquake yesterday, and some big eruptions. This Facebook is in Icelandic but has fantastic photos and a video of crackling lava too.
