Can You Pronounce The Name Of  The Mountain?

A Code Orange has been issued in light of increased likelihood of an eruption in Bárðarbunga volcano located in the northwestern corner of Vatnajökull glacier, Southeast Iceland, after continued earthquakes in the area this morning, mbl.is reports.

The Icelandic Met Office, which oversees not only the weather but also earthquakes and possible volcanic eruptions in Iceland, increased the danger level from yellow to orange, which indicates that the volcano shows heightened or escalating unrest with increased potential of eruption. The next and highest level code is red, which is issued when an eruption begins.

Kristín Jónsdóttir at the Iceland Met Office told RÚV that magma was on the move under the glacier, trying to break up in two different locations.

Bárðarbunga is Iceland’s second highest mountain at 2,000 meters (6,562 feet).

Indications of an imminent eruption in Bárðarbunga will likely appear several hours beforehand if an eruption begins, according to geophysicist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson.

Watch the Eruption Live (If and When it Starts)

If you are interested in seeing an eruption start you might be in luck. A webcam has been placed at Grímsvötn, approximately 30 kilometers (20 miles) from the crater where the eruption might start.

New earthquake meters were also put in place yesterday. Björn Oddsson, a specialist at the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management in Iceland put the camera in place yesterday, ruv.is reports.
