Iceland's 'extremely beautiful' two-week-old volcano added a new chapter on Monday when television photos showed a new crack that began to erupt. According to the Icelandic Meteorological Office statement, the 200-meter-long breach is about a kilometer away from the first crack, in the Geldingadalur Valley. According to the MetOffice, the crack opened at around 12 noon (GMT).  

The latest footage of the official TV broadcaster RUV shows orange lava on the ground, including smoke rising from it, and the new stream of lava is moving to another valley, Merardalyr.

Photos released by the ice land civil protection office show along, a thin stream of lava emanating from the crack going hundreds of meters down the hill, and the entire area is full of smoke.

Volcanoscientist Thorwaldur Thoraderson told news agency AFP that lava was initially coming down the hill at a speed of 10 meters per second, but later its speed slowed down considerably... '


Thorvald Thordarson said, "I think it won't stop... We'll be able to see it for a long time..."



The Met Office said that it is being ensured to evacuate people from helicopters to safe places, and scientists are moving in the direction of the volcano so that they can study. The administration has carefully sealed the volcano and has started evacuating tourists. After the lava started coming out on March 19, there was a crowd of tourists started there.
