A couple of days ago I posted a short story on the rash of earthquakes in Iceland which are forerunners of a volcanic eruption. By now you know that it happened.

Here is a short video (1m 39s) showing flowing lava from the volcanic eruption on the Southern Peninsula near the capital of Iceland. The last eruption was around 800 years before the present.

And here is a short story about the eruption about this from NPR with some stills, including one taken in daylight which provides the lay of the land.

And here is a livestream of this event from Iceland.
