The eruption seems stable

The eruption in South Iceland that started Saturday seems to be stable, according to scientists. The eruption is located in Fimmvorduhals, a passage between two glaciers, Eyjafjallajokull and Myrdalsjokull.

No reason for travelers to worry

There are no reasons for travelers to worry about their trip to Iceland. There are some restrictions for travelling near the eruption and necessary to get information on open roads. On icelandreview.com Vídir Reynisson, divisional manager of the Civil Protection Department, said their goal is to allow tourists to travel to the area near the volcanic eruption zone on Fimmvörduháls so they can view the spectacle up close.

It is difficult to predict how long the volcanic eruption will last. It could end tomorrow but it could also last for days, weeks or even months.
