Road 835 from Grenivík to Lake Mývatn, Northeast Iceland, has been closed since Friday when a large avalanche fell from Gerðarfjall mountain and over the road in Dalsmynni valley between the farms Skarð and Þverá.

An avalanche also fell on the road in January, closing it for a week.

Last Friday’s avalanche was even bigger, ruv.is reports.
