Iceland volcano eruption fears prompts evacuation of Grindavik area – BBC News

Icelandic authorities are building protective walls around Svartsengi Power Plant in the country’s south-west.

Officials hope to protect the geothermal power plant from lava flows amid concerns of an imminent volcanic eruption.

Nearly 800 earthquakes were recorded on the Reykjanes peninsula near the capital Reykjavik over the
weekend, prompting authorities to evacuate nearly 4,000 people from the fishing town of Grindavik on Saturday.
