Fearless people of Iceland filmed the Fagradalsfjadl volcano eruption on video

Red-hot magma and poisonous gas did not become an obstacle for extreme people who did not deny themselves the pleasure of admiring lava flows and capturing rare shots.

Not far from the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, on August 3, a volcano erupted on the slope of Mount Fagradalsfjall, the Icelandic online newspaper Visir.is reports. And although local authorities ask tourists and locals to refrain from being near the mountain, some fearless eyewitnesses came close to the volcano to watch the lava flow and film it.

It is noted that the eruption occurred near Keflavik Airport – the main international aviation hub of Iceland, 30 km southwest of Reykjavik. Volcanologist Thorvaldur Thordarson reports that the eruption is small and neat. A crack in the rock formed in the northwest of the mountain and stretches north along the entire slope, while the plume of magma is approximately 10-15 meters.

The Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management reports no risk of damage to critical infrastructure. Nevertheless, there is a risk of poisoning with poisonous gases, which are necessarily released during a volcanic eruption.

However, this does not deter curious extreme people who came to take photos and videos of a natural phenomenon. Eyewitnesses are already posting videos of the eruption on the net – the footage also shows tourists who came to satisfy their curiosity.

A “code red” was announced at the airport. This means that flights of civil aircraft in the eruption area are prohibited. Meanwhile, meteorologists are studying the danger of the eruption and soon the danger level may be changed. It is also reported that the corridors for international flights remain open.

The Fagradalsfjall volcano eruption area on the Reykjanes peninsula, west of the capital Reykjavik, is on private land. And since this place attracts tourists, part of the territory was put up for sale.
