Scientists have warned that a ‘highly hazardous’ volcano in Iceland is ‘about to erupt’ as the Katla volcano, which translates to ‘kettle’, is releasing CO2 on a massive scale.
However, Sarah Barsotti of the Icelandic Meteorological Office told The Sunday Times that there is “no way of telling when it will erupt, just that it will”.
Barsotti also added that the level of disruption to air travel “depends on the intensity of the eruption and the direction of the winds at the time.”
The last time Katla erupted was 100 years ago, when it threw five times more ash into the sky than Eyjafjallajokull did in 2010.
