Photos of the glacial flood
The awesome power of the Icelandic nature yet again became clear last night when the volcano Katla started a relatively small eruption, causing a glacial flood in the river Múlahvísl. The flood promptly wiped out the bridge over the river. That means that the Ringroad around Iceland (Highway 1) is closed for the time being. The accompanying pictures were taken by Þórir N. Kjartansson early this morning.
