Magma has reached the surface in Geldingadalir in the Reykjanes peninsula. For the first time since last September, when lava stopped running from Fagradalsfjall, the tension has given a way for the magma to burst through, SIA cites foreign media.
The Reykjanes Peninsula is known as a volcanic and seismic hotspot southwest of the capital Reykjavík.
Einar Hjörleifsson, a specialist in Natural hazards with the Met Office, confirmed that there had been a volcanic eruption in a 100 m crack down Merardalir by Fagranesfjall.
Thousands of Icelanders and tourists came to the area due to the explosion.
