A State Of Emergency has been declared in Grindavík, Iceland. Over 1000 Earthquakes Reported In 24 Hours. Volcanic #Eruption deemed "Imminent." Full Evacuation Ordered.
In the last few hours, tremors have come out to sea just SW of Grindavík. If eruption takes place at sea, it will be explosive.
The patrol ship Þór, arrived at Grindavík, but has now been asked to stay away for safety.
The ground in some areas has deformed (moved) almost FOUR FEET in THREE hours! Whatever is going on underneath it, is big.
This will probably be a big volcanic eruption: the dike intrusion near Grindavik that began yesterday caused ground shifts of 120 cm (yes, centimeters). Within three hours. In the last Fagradalsfjall eruption it was 10 cm in one week. Data: https://t.co/7cXRnZ25Lm https://t.co/4oUJrgUuq5— Icevolcanx (@Icevolcanx) November 11, 2023
The last time a volcano (Mount Eyjafjallajökull) erupted in Iceland, flights to and from the US to the UK were cancelled for nearly 3 weeks if i remember correctly!
(HT REMARK: Oh boy. i wonder if this is going to happen again.)
