News from Grímsvötn volcano, Iceland:

Grímsvötn volcano (Iceland) activity update: small glacial flood on 29 Jan 2012

martes ene 31, 2012 00:01 | POR: T

Una pequeña avalancha glacial ocurrió en Volcán Grimsvotn en Islandia el 29 de enero de 2012. La causa de la inundación fue probablemente no volcánica, pero fuertes lluvias y temperaturas inusualmente altas que causó causaron nieve derretir. Las inundaciones dañaron partes de la carretera de circunvalación entre Núpsvötn y Gígjukvísl en la llanura de inundación de Skeiðarársandur y de Gígjukvísl.
