Bakkakotsá river is close to overflowing Ring Road one in South Iceland, between Vík í Mýrdal and Hvolsvöllur. Our photographer Páll Stefánsson took the above photo a short while ago.

Fields by Eyjafjöll mountains, in South Iceland, are also under water.

Rivers in South and West Iceland have begun swelling, as a result of heavy rain, which began yesterday. The water level is expected to continue rising in the next couple of days.
