Iceland volcano: River of lava flows from new fissure as hikers evacuated
CA, 06 Apr 2021
A new fissure opened up at a volcano on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula on Monday, sending a river of lava into Geldingadalir Valley, and prompting the evacuation of hundreds of hikers who had come to see the rare fiery show.
The new fissure was first seen from a helicopter, measuring around 200 metres until a half-mile from the original eruption site, flowing down to form a new lava pool.
The volcano first erupted on March 19 after a series of earthquakes shook the area. Before that, the area hadn't experienced a volcanic eruption for nearly 800 years.
