As most of you probably know, the volcano eruption that I visited the other day has stopped. But instead we got another active one, in the same glacier, but much bigger.
Here are some incredible photos from the eruption site and the surrounding area. The one I visited the other day was tiny really, beautiful and tourist friendly. This one is definitely not. Air traffic has s topped as the ash could spreads over Europe. The company I am working for, as well as most airlines in Europe, are taking the hit.
Things are OK in the capital area where I am. If the wind starts blowing from the East we might get some ash over here. Things change every minute, it is scary. My heart and thoughts are with everyone that suffer from this. I am also crossing fingers that this will not wake up Katla, a big nasty volcano that has been sleeping since 1918. That volcano usually erupts once every 100 years or so, but everyone is hoping that it is not going to happen any time soon as the effects of that would be world wide since that eruption would be a hell of a lot bigger than this. There is also a chance of massive floods due to glacier melting if that happens. So yes, hoping hoping hoping that it does NOT happen. So far nothing is indicating that it will happen. Hopefully it will stay that way.
More pictures can be found in this photo pool on Flickr, but from the current one and the on I visited that has died down.
Here is a video on youtube.
Here is a video from an explosion in the eruption. It happens after about 6 seconds or so.
