New Volcano Update from Nikita in Iceland

Share:

Yesterday we posted this email from Geiri at Nikita, sharing some pictures and video from the volcano that’s caused so much disruption in the UK and Europe.

Today he sent us this update, with even more incredible photos…

Greetings from Iceland

We here at Nikita Iceland have been getting a lot of emails and viral feedback from people all over the world asking us if we are alright. And the answer is quite simple: “Yes, we are alright and so is the rest of the island”. The eruption and ash cloud is mainly affecting a rural area in the south.

Pictures often say more than a many words or over pesimistic news reporters. So check out the pictures below:

The below satelite picture shows pretty well how the volcano is affecting Iceland. It’s right there in the bottom (south) spewing ash towards Europe. And yes there is still plenty of snow even though it is officially the first day of summer here tomorrow. And yes all is well here in Iceland, don’t believe everything the global media spews at you :)

Hope our little vocano is not causing to much problems for you.

Cheers

    One of the news reporters when it all kicked off said “Vulcanologists are on the case.” What exactly does that mean? “Naughty volcano! Naughty!”

    There are rumours emerging that Iceland deliberately engineered the volcanic eruption…
