Volcano in Iceland erupts for the fourth time in three months

Grindavik, Iceland — A volcano of Iceland It erupted Saturday afternoon for the fourth time in three months, spewing jets of orange lava into the night sky.

The Iceland Meteorological Office indicated that the eruption opened a fissure in the earth about almost 2 miles long between the mountains Stóra-Skógfell and Hagafell, on the Reykjanes Peninsula.

The Met Office warned for weeks that magma, which is semi-molten rock, was building up underground, making an eruption likely.

When the eruption began, hundreds of people were evacuated from the Blue Lagoon hot springs resort, one of Iceland's main tourist attractions, according to the national broadcaster RUV.

No flight disruptions were reported at nearby Keflavik airport, which is Iceland's main airport.
