Video | A drone captures a majestic close-up scene of the Icelandic volcano eruption

Weather of Arabia - After a series of small earthquakes in February 2021 in the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland, experts warned that magma was moving under the Gildadalur Valley and could erupt soon, and as late as March 19, the volcanic eruption had already begun when it erupted. Lava across from Fagradalsfjall, one of the many shield volcanoes on the peninsula.

Volcano "Vagradals" in Iceland began to spew lava after it remained dormant for 6 thousand years, which aroused the curiosity of scientists and tourists who flocked to the vicinity of the volcano, and a person launched his drone to closely record the scenes of the volcanic eruption.

 

News reports indicated that a river of lava was visible from as far away as the country's capital, 30 kilometers away. The eruption can also be seen from space by satellites orbiting the Earth at an altitude of hundreds of kilometers.

This has indicated the Icelandic Meteorological Office that the risks of this volcanic explosion are currently limited to the vicinity of the site of the eruption and the nearby valleys. The unhealthy air produced by volcanic gases is not expected to significantly affect people who live elsewhere in the Reykjanes Peninsula or in the metropolitan area.
