Spotted this story in my feed this morning. Looks like Askja is causing some concern in Iceland and across the European continent.
Hundreds of earthquakes have rocked the Icelandic Askja volcano which is situated in the eastern volcanic belt. There have been more than 550 earthquakes so far, the highest with magnitudes 3.2 and 3.4, felt by local residents. If it were to erupt, the ash cloud would be carried directly over western Europe before circulating back over into central Europe and up to Scandinavia, according to severe weather Europe.
EUROPE is under threat of a volcano in Iceland erupting causing a huge ash cloud to swamp the entire continent and enormous disruption to millions.
