Second fissure opens in the Icelandic eruption

A second set of vents have opened at the Fimmvörðuhálsi eruption in Iceland – and you can watch it on the live webcam!

Superfast entry as I run out the door but …


nThe new vent that opened on March 31 at Fimmvörðuhálsi in Iceland. The old vent is to the right in the image and new to the left. Image captured at 5:45PM EDT.


A second fissure has opened at the Fimmvörðuhálsi eruption in Iceland. Check out the webcam and you can clearly see a new set of vents (Icelandic – try Google Translate) on the left hand side of the image – and that wasn’t there earlier today. You can see an image of the new vents here.


Thank you to all the Eruptions readers who have been keeping us posted!
