Rare eruption in Iceland

(WDAY TV) - A spectacular sight in Iceland, a rare eruption of a volcano.

By: WDAY Staff Reports, WDAY

The volcano has been dormant for 200-years, before erupting March 21st.

450-people have been evacuated, as a precaution. Scientists are concerned the seismic activity could trigger a bigger eruption from a nearby volcano, or melt the glacier, creating flooding.

There hasn't been an eruption near this glacier since 1821.
