Iceland volcano Geldingadalir / Meradalir eruption





It's quite fascinating. I've been watching this stream since it started erupting. The amount of magmatic power that is going on here is insanely high. New tissues and vents keep opening up now.

1. OMG

People are standing just a few feet from the lava. I prefer the helicopter or drone view.

2. Reminds me of ants

When they surround like a piece of popsicle that falls off your stick and they'll surround it because of the sugar.

I'll admit I would be up that close too because I'm always curious

4. I'd be up there, too!

I didn't know you could actually get that close. Wow!

6. I would as well. There are a number of First Responder groups there

EMT, Search and Rescue teams, ambulance etc. Intrepid Newsman talked about it the other day.

They move in very quickly to move the crowd back. Most of the crowd is alongside the flow, rather than ahead of it. Also the site has been closed to everyone except the scientists a couple of times, due to the gases heading inland rather than out to sea.

I would need to be 30 years younger and in the physical shape I was in when I was still caving. However I am still obsessed enough to still be up at nearly 3 am watching it

5. he is my favorite comment person! I am just as obsessed as he is with this volcano

I think I have stumbled into this video about 100 times because people keep posting it and it looks like it just went up and might be something new!

I check into You Tube quite often to see what is happening.
