The Icelandic Met Office has confirmed an eruption has started in Holuhraun, north of Dyngjujökull. This is further backed up by the Míla live-feed where the eruption is visible in the distance. 

According to Iceland’s Civil Protection Authority the lava is making its way to the surface through a 100 metre long fissure with low lava fountains with thin flowing lava. The eruption site is located in an area devoid of ice meaning that the flood risk for North Iceland is so far minimal.
