A geophysics professor from the University of Iceland has warned people not to travel up Hekla volcano in South Iceland as it could erupt at any moment.
As reported by Icelandic news website visir.is (link in Icelandic), Hekla erupted regularly ever ten years or so from 1970 to 2000 but has now been silent for sixteen years.
According to Professor Páll Einarsson, pressure readings within the famous volcano are now higher than before the last two previous eruptions meaning it could blow with little warning.
