The police of Norðurland Eystra took a picture of a sign post in front of the still-growing Holuhraun lava field on Saturday. The signpost has since been swallowed by the slow but inevitable tide of molten lava, reports Vísir.

Þessi mynd var tekin í gær 17. janúar en í dag þann 18. er skiltið horfið undir hraun. Staðsetning skiltis var um það bil N 64°55,823 W 16°45,920

The situation at the eruption site remains unchanged since the Grapevine last reported on the issue this weekend.

RIP signpost.
