While tourists and locals are visiting the Volcano another volcano erupts. Local authorities have closed down the site and are trying to get people away from the scene. A helicopter from the special forces is on the way to assist.
The new volcano erupted just minutes ago 500 Meters north-east of the first one (Geldingardal). This can be seen on the local webcam. The first one to detect the eruption was the flight tower in Keflavik that received word from pilots.
As we reported days ago it seems quite strange that people are more afraid of COVID-19 than visiting an active volcano. We just hope that all goes well and that visitors can get away from the site without problems.
