I might be wrong but I think it is based on an old lava field but is now extending it having erupted through the previous lava. It will be interesting to see what develops.

And yes agreed Patrick it definitely has that Icelandic fissure look about it.

Nice drone image of the new opening in that VolcanoCafe link. 


I video captured the the moment the fissure opened from one of the MDL cams while it is still available and will post up here later, just so as to keep for posterity. The thing about these sort of eruptions is that the can last only a few hours or days,, or could go on for months!

We just need 'Gutin Tog' now come in on the act once again too. A real character it has to be said but he always managed to capture some great footage too.

Came across these lads last night who got some great close up footage of the new eruption.

A channel worth subscribing to I reckon.

I knew it wouldn't be long before the guy from Reykjavik Grapevine was on the case. Amazing footage here!

And the sheer scale of the lava in the video is impressive. This was 6 hours after it started.
