Deniz polisinden Adalar çevresinde 'deniz taksi' denetimi

According to a report by Iceland's television and radio broadcaster Rúv, tremors were recorded at 5:20 a.m. local time at the Fagradalsfjall volcano, located 30 kilometers southwest of the capital Reykjavik. Rúv reported that magma began surfacing by 6 a.m.

Geophysicist Benedikt Ofeigsson from the Icelandic Meteorological Office said in a statement to the television company that the volcanic eruption happened very rapidly.

The sixth eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula occurred just three weeks after the last volcanic eruption in the small coastal community of Gr indavik.

Geophysicist Kristin Jonsdottir from the Icelandic Meteorological Office told Rúv that a fissure north of the area where the December eruption occurred had burst.

Rúv also reported that all activities in the vicinity of the popular Blue Lagoon spa and surrounding area were evacuated overnight and in the morning. All facilities around the Svartsengi geothermal power plant will remain closed on Thursday.
