At https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2022/05/11/iceland-reykjanes-volcano-update-alert-level-raised-to-yellow-magma-activity-near-geothermal-plant/ … the alert level was raised in response to a new intrusion of magma in the volcano on Reykjanes peninsular. It is centred beneath a geothermal power station. If the volcano erupts it may involve an explosive outburst, threatening the nearby town. In fact, over 3000 tremors have been reported in the past week.
