(CNN) -- Icelandic authorities evacuated about 800 people early Wednesday when a volcano erupted beneath the Eyjafjallajokull glacier, an emergency spokesman said.

The first evacuations began at 2 a.m. (10 p.m. ET Tuesday), according to Rognvaldur Olafsson, chief inspector at Iceland's Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management. He said everyone in the area was safe.

"We have located the fissure that is erupting under the glacier," Olafsson told CNN. He said scientists are currently doing aerial reconnaissance of the area and that officials would know more when they return.

So far, he said, the eruption has created a large hole in the glacier. Lava is not a big concern but flooding is, he said.

"The volcano is under the glacier and it's melting parts of the glacier," Olafsson said. "The rivers will rise and potentially make some damage."

Rivers closest to the glacier have already started rising, he added.

The glacier is the sixth-biggest in Iceland, just to the west of the bigger glacier, Myrdalsjokull. It is about 100 miles (160 km) east of the capital, Reykjavik.

A map from the Icelandic Meteorological Office showed seismic activity of between 1 and 2 magnitude in the area around the glacier Wednesday morning.

Iceland Volcano Evacuation: Eyjafjallajokull Shows Signs Of Second Eruption
GUDJON HELGASON and JILL LAWLESS | 04/14/10 10:53 AM

REYKJAVIK, Iceland — A volcano under a glacier in Iceland erupted Wednesday for the second time in less than a month, melting ice, spewing smoke and steam, closing a major road and forcing hundreds of people to flee rising floodwaters.

Authorities evacuated 800 residents from around the Eyjafjallajokull glacier as rivers rose by up to 10 feet (3 meters).

Emergency officials and scientists said the eruption under the ice cap was 10 to 20 times more powerful than one last month, and carried a much greater risk of widespread flooding.

"This is a very much more violent eruption, because it's interacting with ice and water," said Andy Russell, an expert in glacial flooding at the University of Newcastle in northern England. "It becomes much more explosive, instead of a nice lava flow oozing out of the ground."

Rognvaldur Olafsson, a chief inspector for the Icelandic Civil Protection Agency, said no lives or properties were in immediate danger. Scientists said there was no sign of increased activity at the much larger Katla volcano nearby.

Iceland's Meteorological Office said a plume of steam rose at least five miles (eight kilometers) into the air. Scientists aboard a Coast Guard plane that flew over the volcano said the new fissure appeared to be up to 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) long.

There were no immediate signs of large clouds of volcanic ash, which could disrupt air travel between Europe and North America. Some domestic flights were canceled, but Iceland's international airport remained open.

The volcano, about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east of Reykjavik, erupted March 20 after almost 200 years of silence.

The original eruption petered out earlier this week. But Gunnar Gudmundsson, a geophysicist at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, said there were a series of tremors overnight, and rivers in the area began rising Wednesday morning – strong evidence of a new eruption under the glacier.

Last month's eruption struck near the glacier in an area that had no ice. Gudmundsson said the new eruption appeared to be about eight or nine kilometers (five to six miles) west of the original fissure.

"Most probably this eruption is taking place at the summit ... under the ice," he said.

Pall Einarsson, a geophysicist at the University of Iceland, said magma was melting a hole in the 650-foot (200 meter) thick ice covering the volcano's crater, sending floodwater coursing down the glacier into lowland areas.

Residents were evacuated to a Red Cross center in the nearby community of Hvolsvollur, the Civil Protection Agency said.

Iceland's main coastal ring road was closed near the volcano, and workers smashed a hole in the highway in a bid to give the rushing water a clear route to the coast and prevent a major bridge from being swept away.

Iceland, a nation of 320,000 people, sits on a large volcanic hot spot in the Atlantic's mid-oceanic ridge. Volcanic eruptions are often triggered by seismic activity when the Earth's plates move and when magma from deep underground pushes its way to the surface.

The last time there was an eruption near the 100-square-mile (160 square-kilometer) Eyjafjallajokull glacier was in 1821.

A bigger worry is Katla, which in the past has erupted in tandem with Eyjafjallajokull.

Katla is located under the vast Myrdalsjokull ice cap. An eruption could cause widespread flooding and disrupt air traffic between Europe and North America.

The last major eruption took place in 1918, and vulcanologists say a new blast is overdue.

"So far there have been no signs of the reawakening of the Katla volcano, but a lot of things can still happen, so we are monitoring it quite closely," Einarsson said.

Reykjavik (dpa) - After nearly 200 years, erupted again glacial volcano in Iceland has increased its activities dramatically.

Good find! I already said it in the big Iceland topic, that when these Solar Activities are getting worse in the coming weeks, the volcano will go worse... and so will the earthquakes.... Look now few weeks later > it is happening :shock: Ok I admit that anyone with a brain and some open minded perspective can see the connections... but this shit is getting scarier every week now :nails: And the authoroties and organisations around the world are coming more forward with articles and reports about new findings that have potentially bad consequences..... wether it is fearmongering or not > everyone can see it is getting worse!

P.S. How does that translator work.... it's perfect, good translation! Better then my crappy google translator. :think:

this fly zone is closed,they are afraid Volcano ash can be drawn into the aircraft engines and cause them to stop working

Image

This is a forecast for today at 12 pm The red line shows where the ashes will be positioned off the ground and up to 20 000 feet. The green line shows the area where there may be problems of air traffic between 20 000 and 35 000 feet.

:mrgreen: ;) :peep:

I agree, and think it WILL only get worse. It also seems odd that with all the signs of planetary and cosmic changes, the amounts of huge discoveries like water on the Moon, the 47 million year old Ardi fossil, life under Antarcticas ice sheets, just to mention a few. I seem to remember a scriptuer or somthing that refers to such things. A huge increase in Mans knowledge, people running to a fro ect.ect.ect. something like that, and right when things seem to be going to hell. Could there be an outside force causeing this? Nibiru? just sayin. :hmmm: P.S. translation is good! :flop:

It definitely does seem like something from space is causing our earth and weather patterns to be in the extreme mode.

I have noticed that the rise in 5 plus mag earthquakes are closely related to the geomagnetic storms from recent CME's. Just an observation though.

Important Passenger Information - Major disruption expected
Last updated: 6:00am

Following advice from the Met Office, the National Air Traffic Service (NATS) has introduced restrictions to UK airspace this morning as a result of volcanic ash drifting across the UK from Iceland. These measures currently affect Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow airports which are closed but may also affect other parts of the UK later today. Passengers intending to fly today are asked to contact their airline for further information and should expect disruption in the coming hours. Updates will be issued throughout the morning.

This is a link to a BBC vid, interesting, especially with regard to the Katla Vulcona.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8620352.stm

If you view these events in light of the Edgar Casey predictions we are in for some serious shit.
