Steam Rises From Cracked Roads in Icelandic Town Braced for Volcanic Eruption

Rising steam, buckled earth and cracked pavements could be seen in the evacuated Icelandic town of Grindavik on November 13 after hundreds of earthquakes, and amid warnings of a likely volcanic eruption in the area. The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration said on Monday that “extensive” repairs would be needed after the eruptions left some roads “completely impassable.” “All roads to Grindavík are closed and traffic on them is forbidden. Rescue squads and responders have been given an exception,” the agency added in a Facebook update. Credit: DV/Kristinn Svanur Jonsson via Storyful
