I,m starting to believe that drunks named the volcanos in iceland.
 

 Volcanic eruption confirmed north of DyngjujökullNews in englishkl 01:16, 29. ágúst 2014 Lava eruption has begun in the Holuhraun lava field, north of Dyngjujökull. The Met office confirms that and webcams in the area show that lava is braking its way up on the surface.

First news from the Civil Protection in Iceland tell us that the Lava is making its way up on the surface in a 400m long area north of Dyngjujökull.

The eruption is located on an ice-free zone which tells us that no ice is being melted so far causing floods in rivers in the north of Iceland. "This is probably located on the north end of the lava tunnel that moves from under Dyngjujökull. The eruption is located on an ice-free zone" says Rögnvaldur Ólafsson from the Civil protection in Iceland.

"The eruption is not a big one, but we urge people to be safe and not go to near the eruption," says Rögnvaldur. "There are chances of explosions."

a 1km long fissure has opened near the volcano.
 
also.. more than  1 volcano has been showing activity.. so far only 1 has erupted but the others are very active with EQs

lava river
 
it seems the rifts (rips in earth) are trying to make their way to the second volcano.
 
in some parts the lava is spewing 70 mtrs into the air.. not a mt st helens type of eruption. possibly worse. certainly for europe  if it develops an ash cloud. so far its only spewing laVA AND VERY LITTLE ASH..  sry caps.
 
the remains of hurricane cristobel has just went over the island bring high winds and rain.
 
volcanocafe and glp have extensive therads on this event.
 
ongoing EQs have slowed down abit but magnitude 4s and 5s are common.
 
at present the eruption does not involve ice, but if it should reach the icefield, rapid melting/flooding and possible violent explosions will result. or.. if an eruption below an icefield should occur, expect a massive explosion.
aviation alerts go from orange to red and back to orange. depending on wind and amounts (if any) of ash.

another 5.0 just rang its bell. with over 5000  EQs already, one would think the ground would be so fractured that anything at all, could trigger a collapse into the magma chambers. ice, or no ice, would determine the extent of that event.
