Video | Lava continues to flow from Iceland volcano

Officials in Iceland are watching the eruption of the Fagradalsfjall volcano on the Reykjavik peninsula near the city’s airport in Iceland, which has drawn in bright orange lava flows despite warnings from officials.

The volcano erupted last Wednesday at 1 pm, and the Icelandic Meteorological Office urged people to stay away from the volcano.

“Currently, there is no risk to flights to and from Iceland, and international flight lanes remain available at the airport near the volcano,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

“So far, the volcano does not pose any danger to populated areas or critical infrastructure, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely,” Icelandic Prime Minister Catherine Jakobsdottir said in a statement.
