An Iceland Volcano Erupts Again

GRINDAVIK, Iceland (AP) — A volcano in southwestern Iceland is erupting, spewing red streams of lava and triggering the evacuation of the popular Blue Lagoon geothermal spa.

The eruption began in the early afternoon north of Grindavik, a coastal town of 3,800 people that was largely evacuated in December when the volcano erupted.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office said lava was shooting about 165 feet into the sky from a fissure more than 2 miles long and flowing toward Grindavik, which was evacuated in December.
