Volcano dramatically erupted in Iceland on Monday, with spectacular bursts of lava and smoke

The office reported that the eruption was close to Hagafell, about 3 kilometers (about 2 miles) north of Grindavík.

The town of more than 3,000 people, which at one point risked being in the path of flowing lava, is now clear of residents, RÚV reported, citing police.

 The eruption is classified as a fissure eruption, which does not usually result in large explosions or significant ash production dispersed into the stratosphere 

In the first two hours of the eruption, hundreds of cubic meters of lava were being released per second

The agency said, referencing a 1973 eruption that began without warning and destroyed 400 homes. 

Iceland’s government said the fissure opening is almost 4 kilometers long. It is the fourth eruption in the area since 2021 and the largest so far

It is releasing “considerable” toxic gases, said the Icelandic Tourist Board on Tuesday.

People are strongly advised against visiting the site of the eruption while responders and scientists assess the situation 

The country’s Civil Protection Agency said a magma tunnel was forming that could reach Grindavík
