Drone Footage Gives Astounding View of Volcanic Eruption in Iceland

A photographer captured stunning footage on Sunday, March 21, showing lava flowing from a volcano on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula after a rare eruption.

Drone video by Reykjavík resident Bjorn Seinbekk gives some amazing close-up views of the Fagradalsfjall volcano and trails of lava.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office said the eruption was small and had followed an uptick in seismic activity in the region.

The Department for Civil Protection said it did not believe the activity posed any threat to structures or settlements in the area. Credit: Bjorn Seinbekk via Storyful
