Fagradalsfjall (Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland): The lava effusion continues to fill up the Meradalir valley on the east and might soon start overflowing into the adjacent Suðurstrandavegi valley. It may takes about one week to happen, but a more likely scenario is estimated to take weeks or months, says Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson, a professor of volcanology at the University of Iceland.
Observations indicate that the lava at the easternmost point in the Meradalir has risen by 4-to-5 meters in comparison to the last Sunday.
The advancing lava flow breaks the 2021 lava flow field into big slabs pushing ahead of it, even up the hill. The lava flow is currently approx. 150 meters from the pass (the lowest point)to overflow.
