The picture was taken by the Coast guard and Im sure you will find updates at these links.
Here are the most notable news outlets.
Just talked to a friend on the phone , he told me that there hasnt been an eruption there for 200 years and usually Katla follows.
Now THAT will NOT be nice....
Add : Apparently this eruption is about 10-20 times more powerful then the recent one. The "crack" is now about 2 km length. They are expecting a lot of flooding.

Potential for a phreatic eruption..
Volcanologist Haraldur Sigurdsson said there is a risk of a phreatic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull glacier in south Iceland, which occurs when magma makes contact with water. The crater at the glacier’s summit is filled with ice which is starting to melt.
