Astonishingly loud bang, that one. However, doesn't seem to be a lot of juvenile material but was mostly a steam-driven explosion. Pretty big one though! This might not be the last one of this episode either. Hope none of the low-lying islands to the North East suffered any casualties. No news yet. Apparently two died in Peru and I heard a report from Chile that two died in the tsunami there.

In contrast to La Palma or Iceland, this one actually is scary with an unholy combination of high magma output (and a very recent dike intrusion), loads of water to make it go phreatic and a high population surrounding it.

danger!

bit misleading... they mean the most powerful eruption on that particular island in half a century. There have been a lot of far more powerful eruptions elsewhere around the globe. This one is actually tiny but very typical for the island.

the nature of icelandic volcanic virgin detection has a long history of the best "anecdotal science experience" known to ph'd mythologists the world over

Seriously, two nights ago Siri sent me past warning signs (…your own risk) up a series of switchbacks to the top of a plateau in the rain at night. totally deserted. And then my gas gauge beeped that we were near empty. Siri  cheerfully told us we were at our destination. In nothingness. So we turned around and headed back to try to find gas.
And then, right before the switchbacks, my wife asked if I’d be able to steer or brake if the engine stopped.

No. No I couldn’t.

Kept going (no other choice) and went slowly down to ground, then eventually to a far away gas station. But, for a couple of hours, it looked like our options were all horrible. Icelandic roads have no shoulder, so driving off would’ve flipped our car. Stopping meant someone would ram us in the dark. And heading down switchbacks without brakes or steering…well…

Danger Dude!

 not much to hide behind if you want privacy in that neck of the woods. In fact there are no woods.
Then again there's nobody there except the odd sheep getting blown about in an arctic gale.

well you can survive just about anything, except lava
and maybe a pyroclastic cloud
signs you might be in danger when next to a volcano?
eruptions and proximity to lava
a nasty screaming hot cloud of ash bearing down on your 20
not sure about the old icelandic "lava knows if you're a virgin legend"
you may want to stop and boink in the area (just to be sure)
