Potential disaster eruption will happen.

If the current eruption in “Holuhraun”, moves into the glacier "Bardarbunga" or a new eruption occurs there, it is a big chance that this can happen: The eruption could cause an outburst flood and possibly an explosive, ash-producing activity. In the event of a sub glacial eruption, it is most likely that flooding would affect “Jokulsa a Fjollum”. It is also possibly a flood coming in these rivers from the glacier Vatnajokul: Skjalfandafljot, Kaldakvisl, Skafta and Grimsvotn.
