Eruptions in Iceland!
Iceland on Fire Plumes of smoke and a thick steam sit over the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland, on April 15, 2010, where the Fimmvorduhals volcano beneath erupted for the second time in less than a month. Though the destruction was minimal, hundreds fled the area to avoid floodwaters and volcanic ash. Scientists said the second eruption was 10 to 20 times more powerful than the one just last month.
