Possible 100 days a powerful volcanic eruption

Explosive activity in "Eyfell" glacier volcanic has increased and effusive part has decreased for the last two days. This results in a higher eruption column with increased tephra fallout the IMO says. There are no signs that the eruption is about to end. No measurable geophysical changes within the Katla volcano. See more in Status Report issued by Icelandic Meteorological Office and Institute of Earth Sciences, University of Iceland, at 18:00.
