The small cinder cone from the volcano at Geldingadal became very active on Wednesday and is now almost as big as the first one. Also, it looks like the valley will soon fill with lava, and therefore the big question is: What happens after that? Experts say the lava will probably head east towards the road called Suðurstrandarvegur in the east of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Valur and Pollý also met with Dr. Matthew Roby and he told us about his upcoming show about volcanos in the Icelandic sagas.
