The public’s faith in politics and banks seems not to have been restored in Iceland since the 2008 economic collapse. In a new survey by MMR, 54.7 percent of respondents stated they had little faith in Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament, and 66.8 percent had little faith in the banking system.
A storm is currently raging in South Iceland, reaching a speed of 40 meters per second at Stórhöfði in Vestmannaeyjar (the Westman Islands) and 50 meters per second in the strongest squalls at Stórhöfði, below the Eyjafjöll mountains and Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
The Arctic fox stock in nature reserve Hornstrandir in the West Fjords nearly collapsed this past summer. A multitude of foxes were found dead and very few pairs managed to raise cubs, as stated in a report by the Icelandic Institute of Natural History (NÍ) released last week.
Daniel Haußmann has made a video showing the ongoing eruption in Holuhraun. Shot from the ground and on a helicopter, the video gives an impression of the forces nature in the volcano.
