Volcano erupts in Iceland, spurs 50 quakes


www.msnbc.msn.com

REYKJAVIK, Iceland— Iceland's most active
volcano erupted Saturday, with a white plume
shooting 18,000 feet into the air, scientists
said.

The eruption was followed by around 50 small
earthquakes, the largest of which measured
3.7 on the Richter Scale, according to Iceland's
meteorological office.

There was a similar eruption at the same
volcano in 2004.

Scientists don't believe this eruption will lead
to air travel chaos like that caused by ash from
the Eyjafjallajokul volcano in April 2010.

The Grimsvotn volcano is located underneath
the Vatnajokull glacier in southeast Iceland.

Well, this is the one, I believe we were all watching back in November when there was meltwater coming from the glacier. It did not erupt then, but it appears to be erupting now. I am still looking for pics. Would love to see what a volcano erupting from under a glacier looks like.

Currently, it is not expected that this will be a very serious issue to air travel or a danger to many people. Still kind of cool.

This would appear to be an eruption from 2004, but I imagine it looks the same today.

Just wondering how this volcano compares to Eya fffffff ccc elll.....how ever the heck you spell that last one that stopped all the flights!

Worse case scenario, is this an even bigger 'sister' than Katla or does it depend on the KIND of volcano as well as it's underground path/tunnels etc?

Yours ignorantly,

I have a post on here relating to the recent stranding of pilot whales on the shores of the British Isles, and an imminent major eruption in Iceland:

A couple others and myself also had a suspicion a couple weeks ago that Iceland would suffer a natural disaster soon:

Still, I guess we'll have to wait and see if this eruption goes big or is just another false alarm. Lets just hope nothing happens but I fear we can't really trust mother nature on this...

Iceland is essentially a giant volcano, its how the island was formed and is still forming.

This is humorus but not funny. Ugh why does everything have to revolve around this today?

Isn't there another thread about this? I posted in it o.0 Not sure what's first or not.
Ah well.

I can see Camping's camp citing this event as proof of something. Their story will change somehow, but this disruptive incident will only fuel their fire. This will be trumpeted as proof that something happened today, and the next date they'll want us to watch for is October 21st.

They'll figure out how to explain away all the other things that didn't line up with their predictions by fresh reinterpretation of the Scripture.

Get ready.

For now don´t bookmark anything, this thread is actually a older thread then this one www.abovetopsecret.com... and this thread will get closed.

I am having a single sided argument with the ats staff, (single as in not getting any responce) I will get back to you as soon as it is resolved. But i´ll tell you this though ,it´s apperently just ash falling upon the ice making it black so you don´t see it anymore
