The volcanic eruption in Holuhraun continues with similar intensity as it has for the last two weeks, as reported in the latest Status Report from the Civil Protection Department. Lava continues to flow out of the lava lake in the crater.

The seismic activity in Bárðarbunga volcano remains strong. In total 200 earthquakes were detected in Bárðarbunga between noon on Friday and 9:30 am yesterday morning.

The subsidence of the caldera continues at a similar rate as the last few weeks.

Sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas pollution is expected north of the eruption site today.

Forecasts are available on vedur.is. Pollution levels can be monitored on airquality.is. Advice on how to respond to the pollution is available on the website of the Directorate of Health.
