Iceland volcano erupts on Reykjanes peninsula, 22:17, Dec. 19, 2023

Quote: A volcano has erupted on the Reykjanes peninsula of south-west Iceland after weeks of intense earthquake activity.
About 4,000 people were evacuated last month from Grindavik, a fishing town about 4km (2.5 miles) away.
The eruption started north of the town at 22:17 local time (22:17 GMT) on Monday, the Icelandic Met Office said.

Thumb up for the helicopter pilots operating in this risky area!
Fire is never a pilot's best friend.
