via FOX

Icelandic officials are warning of a high likelihood of a volcanic eruption as hundreds of earthquakes have been recorded, with most centered around the magma dyke at Sundhnúk.

The town of Grindavík has been evacuated due to the volcanic activity, and there are signs of imminent volcanic activity, including the detection of sulphur dioxide gas and smoke rising from cracked roads.

The seismic activity and deformation measurements indicate that an eruption is still considered highly probable, with the exact location and timing remaining uncertain. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)

The Icelandic Meteorological Office said, “Seismic activity has remained constant since 11th of November. The main monitoring focus on seismic activity remains in the area of the dyke and Grindavík.”

“Deformation measurements show continued deformation in the area. They are consistent with magma still flowing into the dyke,” their statement explained.

Warning citizens that, “Part of the magma dyke seems to be solidifying, especially at the edges, but not at the magma inflow area, which is believed to be near Sundhnúk.”

Icelandic officials have determined that the “probability of an eruption is still considered high”, cautioning “in the event of an eruption, the most likely location is at the magma dyke.”
