    I was expecting a bigger eruption but not that soon! Spectacular eruption happened just an hour ago! You can see the shockwaves and lava bombs on the side of the volcano!     Karyo

    Apparently the output in Iceland has increased by 50% I did wonder when all those extra vents opened up.

    Is it still possible for them to leave, or have conditions cut them off?

    From the looks of the jetstream models, sometime mid-week could be a good time for us in the UK/Europe to be on the lookout for deep-red sunsets & sunrises as the upper-winds begin to carry the La Soufriere ash towards this side of the Atlantic.

    Is St Vincent an overseas territory.

    Problem is, they have to get to the other side of the island, in nil visibility, low oxygen, and in vehicles being starved of air by their blocked air filters.

    Should have gone when told unfortunately.

    I don't think it is.  It is part of the Commonwealth though.

    Most of my family live in St Vincent.  Been talking to them a lot over the last couple of days as some of them had to move from the north of the island to the south into the green zone.  Ash has been falling over the whole island and they're struggling to get water as reports have said.

    Do we have more information on plume heights. Does look to have exceeded the 79 eruption.

    The ash cloud is now over 50k feet, or 15km. Initial explosions were up to 6km high.

    The rescue team Þorbjörn claims to be responsible for the eruption

    Rescue workers are especially fun. Therefore, visitors to the eruption sites in Geldingadalur have gotten to know in communication with people from the Þorbjörn Rescue Squad in Grindavík. On their Facebook page, they reveal their responsibility for the beginning of the eruption. People have been so upset by the constant earthquakes that they have used a particularly large match to light a fire. The problem, however, is that now they have no idea how to turn it off again.

    Eldgos hófst í Geldingadölum í Fagradalsfjalli um klukkan korter í níu í föstudagskvöldið 19. mars 2021. Á hádegi 5. apríl opnuðust nýjar gossprungur norðaustan...

    One of the bits of news on this site.

    Surely they didn't start it on purpose to stop earthquakes, that's what the news says anyway. Now what. 

    I hope it's a mistranslation, I'm not sure starting an eruption mechanically, is a good thing. As for stopping it, good luck, it's nature.

    I think the hard working rescue teams might be having a joke??  Does beg the question how you could start a volcanic eruption, best i can think of would require something like a drilling rig advancing a borehole at just the right location into the underlying magma and having a drill crew who are fit enough to run really fast once they've started it 🙂 🙂, obviously the drill rig would be lost.  Or a really big bomb perhaps in just the right spot.

    One of the times when I wish I could speak the language, might have got it then. The translation just doesn't make any sense.

    Its just the teams having a bit of Icelandic humor in a similar way to the tourist board that talks about 'trolls' and 'fairies' for oversea's visitors. There was a proposal to undertake this method at Campi Flegri in Italy but the project was abandoned once it was discovered that compared to nature, any attempts at digging a borehole bears little to no difference when it comes to the scale of a volcano.

    Yup it has a history of pyroclastic flows 1902 it killed 1600 people so it looks like it's do a repeat of that. The last eruption 1979 didn't produce any which was lucky.
