Reykjavík: Iceland’s world-famous Blue Lagoon and the nearby town of Grindavik were evacuated following a volcanic eruption in the country’s Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland’s public broadcaster (RÚV ) reported.

Lava appeared to be flowing rapidly towards north of the town Grindavík, just as it did during the eruption on 8 February, according to the Icelandic Met Office .

The lava was also flowing toward the Grindavíkurvegur road, the main road leading to Grindavik.

Iceland is one of the most active volcanic areas on the planet.
