The "Mount Pinatubo" of Iceland, Then and RIGHT NOW!
Bardarbunga volcano in Iceland goes up like Mount Pinatubo. This
eruption is rated a 6 out of 7 on the Volcanic Explosivity Index. In
other words, it's not the Apocalypse, but if you were anywhere near it
you certainly thought the end was near, right before the end came... for
you. It is putting out an amazing amount of ash and lava. Pyroclastic
flows are a wave front of superheated gas and rock, traveling for miles
at super-speed, destroying everything in it's path. Although lava in
Iceland is more-or-less like lava in Hawaii, the Bardarbunga volcano has
been VERY explosive in the past and over it's life, it has put out more
lava than any other volcano.
My Take by Alex Shrugged Just
so you know, the Bardarbunga volcano became active again in AUGUST
2014! This current eruption has put out the second most amount of lava
in Iceland since the 18th century. Could it explode? Yes, it could. Will
it explode? Iceland is under an alert but even volcano experts cannot
predict such things very far in advance... and in some cases... they
cannot predict the time of a volcanic explosion at all.
