  • Gases from an Icelandic volcano are threatening to pollute the air of a nearby village and spread to the capital, Reykjavik, the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) said on Friday.
  • Concentrations of sulphur dioxide could reach up to 2,600 micrograms per cubic meter, a level considered “unhealthy for the sensitive,” according to the Environment Agency of Iceland.
  • Despite the concerns, visitors have flocked to the eruption in record numbers to marvel at the flow of lava.
