Yes! I thought of Isergodur when I heard about this too.

I hope you are safe there...

Hi thanks you guy's just saw the thread :)

I am fine I live 62 miles away from the volcano, but I am not in a danger zone but I can see it from my street.

I know a lot of people who live in the evacuation zone but the eruption was smaller then expected so everyone is safe at the moment.
they are still keeping a close eye on the volcano and the people who live there are ready to leave there homes if anything happens.

The fear is that it goes up into the glacier and that there will be an eruption in the glacier, then there would be a flood down the glacier and could take a way few of the homes near by.

I think no people will be in danger from this volcanic eruption but lots of farm animals are in harms way if anything happens since this place is very popular for horse farmers.

The big worry is that another mountain close by will become active and then we are in some bad business :S but we will hope for the best :)

Thanks for the prayers and well wishes ;) love you guys..

Gosh! That sounds scary.

I'm glad you're safe so far.

What happens if the other mountain erupts? Is there somewhere safe you can all go?

Well if the other one erupts than I think I am safe but there will be a flash flood and last time the coast line expanded 3 miles(5 km) out to the ocean.
There would be a lot of ash fall and that would impact flight schedules and so on

here is a wikipedia article about Katla the volcano they fear will wake up from the new volcano that is erupting now.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katla

But if something like this would happen we have a great evacuation plan that they have been rehearsing since 2006.
so I think everyone would hopefully survive and get new homes.

This is nowhere near the capital Reykjavik where most of the Icelandic people live so they are all safe.

I will just cross my fingers and hope for the best for everyone.
But when you live in Iceland earthquakes and volcano's are part of the package.
But it is not like it is happening every day so we will survive ;)

Thanks to the volcanic activity in Iceland we have lots of cheap hot water that we use to heat our houses ;)
And there has not been a death from earthquakes and volcano's for many many years.
We build good strong houses that can tolerate bad weather and lots of other stuff.

Since I was born in 1984 there have been 6 volcanic eruptions and 3 big earthquakes they where 6.2. 6.5 and 6.6 Richter magnitude scale but that is small compared to Haiti.

Thanks for the update! So glad to hear you are safe. A volcano on an island just doesn't sound good. Its hard to argue with an active volcano and lava. But clearly you all are used to it. Let us know if anything changes!
