Askja volcano (Iceland): large landslide and tidal wave

Wednesday Jul 23, 2014 14:45 PM | DOOR: T

A large landslide occurred from the southern wall of the Askja caldera yesterday night. The slide caused a large flood wave in the Öskjuvatn lake that also swept into the famous Viti crater.
There are no reports of victims.
Although there have been speculations that the slide could have been triggered by magmatic processes, it is most likely a result of summer warming, melting frozen soil in the caldera walls, destabilizing it.
