Important Takeaways:

  • Iceland volcano erupts for second time this year with lava close to power plant
  • Eruption in Reykjanes peninsula disrupts hot water supply for 20,000 people as lava edges closer to Svartsengi power plant
  • A volcano in Iceland has erupted for the second time this year and the third time since December, pumping lava up to 80 meters (260ft) into the air and disrupting life in the Reykjanes peninsula in the south-west of the country.
  • Fountains of bright orange molten rock spewed from cracks in the ground and lava crossed a road near the Blue Lagoon, a luxury geothermal spa, which had closed on Thursday.
  • The lava flow also hit thermal-based water pipes in the region just south of the capital, Reykjavík, disrupting the supply of hot water to more than 20,000 people and leading the Civil Protection Agency to raise its alert level to emergency status.
  • The agency also asked households and businesses to conserve electricity. Restoring hot water via an emergency pipeline that was already under construction could take days, it said.
