Scientists are closely monitoring the Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland, and there is a heightened risk of an eruption, possibly within days. This volcano last erupted in 2021 after more than 6,000 years of dormancy and has been showing signs of activity, including a series of earthquakes since October.

Recently, researchers discovered an underground river of magma, leading to the evacuation of 4,000 people from the nearby village of Grindavik. Iceland has declared a state of emergency, and residents have been advised to leave their homes again due to the increased risk of eruptions.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office states that the likelihood of eruptions remains high. While residents were briefly allowed to return home to collect their belongings, the ongoing volcanic activity poses a significant risk to the area.

The Fagradalsfjall volcano is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, approximately 20 miles from Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland. The region has experienced increased seismic activity, prompting concerns about the potential for a volcanic eruption.

As the situation evolves, authorities and scientists are closely monitoring the volcano to ensure the safety of the local population.
