On today’s newscast: after months of quiet, over 200 earthquakes have been recorded around the volcano. Something just might be brewing under there and scientists have their suspicions as to what’s going on. We also bring you an update on the election and the mess with the Nortwest constituency. And finally, we discuss what’s happening in La Palma in Spain, and how it reminds us Icelanders of the notorious volcano in Vestmannaeyjar.
