From what I can see on the camera's in Iceland, at the moment, there appears to be some more new lava vents opened up, either side of the 3rd vent/volcano. Otherwise I'm not sure what all the bright red jumping colours are, that have appeared there during the last 12 hours or so.

Pretty sure you're right - looks to be new fissures either side of number 3. The new fissure between original site and 3 seems quite extensive too. The MBL camera angle picks it up quite nicely.

Must make the authorities there quite nervous when you've got so many bods wandering around the site and every few days the ground splits open!

Yes there seem to have been several new vents opening up this morning.

St Vincent update...

St Vincent volcano: UN warns humanitarian crisis will last months

"We are expecting that continuous explosions and ash fall will continue over the coming weeks in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, but also in neighbouring islands such as Barbados, which has also been severely affected... as well as Saint Lucia and Grenada,"

It's like the geological equivalent of thundersnow. Two favourite phenomena at the same time!

Update on St Vincent. Short clip.
"It is three weeks since La Soufriere volcano erupted on the Caribbean island of St Vincent. Around 15 per cent of the island’s population remain in temporary accommodation and at least a third of the country’s agriculture has been wiped out."

Apparently this was the view last night from 20km away from the Icelandic eruption. Some of the fountaining in the last 24 hours has been very impressive. (I’ve read reports of of 2-300m high).

Impressive 😲

The fountains are reaching 2-300 meters in height sending smoke & gass almost 3000 meters high.

That is indeed impressive. But also somewhat odd, with normal day to day life in the foreground and a significant volcanic eruption in the background.

I understood that activity from that area was low-key, so that’s quite unexpected.

Yes, you’re right. In the last day or so there has been a bit of a change to almost geyser-like activity with quiet periods interspersed with lava fountains. It is fascinating to watch on the webcams.

This site (below) probably has the best views, although at present the left camera is not positioned correctly:

Live from the volcano in Geldingadalir, seen from Langihryggur, Iceland - YouTube

Someone spotted a tornado at the eruption site - go to 11:50 on the feed time and you can it form in the left of the picture. (Tornado/dust devil or whatever I guess!).

RVK Newscast #104: The “Lava-Wall” At Fagradalsfjall - YouTube

 

Slightly irritating ads in the middle/end but another good wander around the eruption site including the earth walls they've built to try and stop it overflowing in to the next valley and towards a main road (and over some buried cabling). The sound from the eruption is pretty cool too - a lot of vids you don't really hear that due to the noise of the wind.

Interesting that the average flow is up to 13 cubic metres a second at the moment (was 5-8) - certainly not showing any signs of finishing soon. 

You can also see just how deep the lava is getting by looking at the original vent and area around that - when you think the original vent was at the end of a ridge, which is now buried it just shows how deep it is at that point.
