Iceland's volcano experienced its second eruption in less than a month, destroying homes in Grindavik.

The President of Iceland, Gudni Th. Johannesson, stated that the country is facing significant natural forces due to the eruption.

 The volcano's lava flowed away from Grindavik, causing emergency personnel to construct fortifications to impede molten rock movement.

 The President of Iceland expressed uncertainty about the future course of the eruption but emphasized the importance of taking control.

Iceland's location above a geothermal hotspot in the North Atlantic results in volcanic eruptions every four to five years.

The 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull volcano caused significant disruption by releasing ash clouds into the atmosphere, disrupting trans-Atlantic air travel.

Iceland's fifth volcanic eruption in under three years has engulfed homes, with three houses engulfed in fire as lava flowed into the town of Grindavík.

Icelandic metereological office reports 900-meter long fissure crosses main road to Grindavík, followed by a second 100-meter lava engulfing homes, causing jets of orange lava and smoke.
