Iceland Live Cams Monitor Volcano Ahead of Potential Eruption

Live cams show an Icelandic volcano erupting as authorities warn of a "significant likelihood of a volcanic eruption in the coming days."

Iceland has around 30 active volcanoes, making it one of the most volcanically active areas on the planet. 

 The Fagradalsfjall volcano was dormant for over 800 years before erupting in 2021, and it has since erupted twice more in 2022 and July 2023.

Following its 2010 eruption, the Eyjafjallajökull volcano caused weeks of airline disruptions.

The threatening volcanic region is near the Fagradalsfjall volcano, which is located on Iceland's Reykjanes peninsula, about 30 miles from the capital city of Reykjavik

 with the highest levels of seismic activity detected between the towns of Sundhnkur and Grindavk.

Live cams dotted around the peninsula—including near the Fagradalsfjall volcano, which has Grindavk in the background—show the possible calm before the storm

as the Icelandic Meteorological Office predicts an eruption is imminent, prompting the evacuation of the surrounding area.
