Activity at South Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano last night is described as ‘gentle’ and the current force of the eruption is barely 20 percent of its peak. All indications suggest that the volcano is only now erupting from one of its three craters.
Visir.is reports that some ash has still been falling near the glacier, but that it is in vastly reduced quantities. Earth scientists are careful not to call the end of the eruption too early, however – and all are currently saying it could intensify again.
