Hekla volcano (Iceland): news & activity updates
Hekla volcano (Iceland): unusual seismic activity could be precursor to a new eruption
Tuesday Mar 26, 2013 16:20 PM | DOOR: T
The Icelandic Meteorological Office has informed authorities about unusual seismicity at Hekla volcano, which could be a precursor to a new eruption, and increased the volcanic alert level to yellow. Monitoring of the volcano will be intensified, as Hekla is not only one of the most active, but also one of the potentially most hazardous volcanoes of the country. The last eruption was in March 2000. On average, the volcano has been erupting about every 10 years, and it would statistically seen be due for a new one.
"Uncertainty level" was declared by Civil Protection as the lowest of 3 alert levels in case of natural hazards.
