“Hekla has been preparing for an eruption since it last erupted in 2000. There are many indications that it is ripe for an eruption and it has been ready to burst for a few years,” Einarsson told Fréttabladid, adding that an eruption in Hekla would likely be small.
“The past eruptions in Hekla have been rather harmless, but the past eruptions in Grímsvötn were also rather harmless so you never know,” he said.
