Volcano erupts in Iceland after remaining inactive for 900 years
Here is that amazing FPV drone video of the volcanic eruption in Iceland taken by @BSteinbekk. I asked his son to get him an account on Twitter so I can properly credit his content. I deleted my original post. pic.twitter.com/Cz9tAqAOTS— Anthony Quintano Photography (@AnthonyQuintano) March 22, 2021
Iceland is known for its active volcanoes and there are currently about 32 active volcanic systems in the country. The last volcanic eruption was caused by plate displacement in the area. The volcano can be reached on foot in 90 minutes and people tried to get to the area to see this natural phenomenon. However, they were advised not to get too close to the lava for obvious reasons. Fortunately, the lava was stuck in the valley, and the volcanic eruption posed no threat to the inhabitants.
One of the biggest hazards during such an explosion is the release of sulfur dioxide, which can be dangerous and sometimes deadly. Rescue operations continued after many people encountered difficulties returning to the city.
