    Long-Dormant Volcano in Iceland Awakens in Fiery Eruption

    A long-dormant volcano erupted on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula on Friday, shooting a fountain of lava that lit the night sky roughly 30 kilometres southwest of the nation’s capital, the Icelandic Meteorological Office reported Friday. The eruption, estimated to be the peninsula’s first in almost 800 years, follows weeks of increased seismic activity in the region.
