Local scientists in Iceland are beginning to backtrack away from there really being a sub glacial volcano erupting in Vatnajokull glacier in Iceland. Seems the shouts about an eruption were like bad sex; premature. 

This is serious stuff. Thousands of folks around the globe remember well the disruption the latest volcano in Iceland caused and any signs another one might be on the way sends cold shivers down spines of all boarding a flight.

Well, let us give the scientists the benefit of the doubt. Volcanoes, as most other natural occurrences, are terribly hard to predict or pinpoint. Always better to be safe than sorry is it not.

Anyways, as of time of writing there seems NOT to be a volcanic eruption in process or at least nothing likely to burst through the glacier and surprise everybody.

That does not mean you can start that Vatnajokull hike you always dreamed of. Let us wait for the tremors underneath to subside before going near the place.
