Fagradalsfjall puts volcanic eruption and Iceland on alert

According to the Meteorological Service of Iceland, an explosion began in Fagradalsfjal. It was a terrible explosion after thousands of earthquakes in the last few weeks near the capital Reykjavik.

Phagdalafzal is on the Reykjanes Peninsula. The eruption of the volcano began in the vicinity of Mount Fagradalasfjal, the westernmost part of the top mountain of the Reykjanes peninsula. It was first seen as a red glow on the horizon.

Fagradalsfjall is a 385-meter-high hyaloclastite formed in a sub-glacial eruption during the Ice Age. It was the site of a United States military plane crash in 1943 that killed 14 people.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office said it is a long-volcanic volcano in southwestern Iceland, about 40 kilometers from the capital Reykjavik.

Local media reported that air traffic to Keflavik International Airport was halted.

The explosion comes after thousands of small earthquakes in the area over the past few weeks, with officials preparing to explode as a result.
