Volcano Alert: Bardarbunga in Iceland Eruption in Progress/Red Alert declared - Live Video Stream - 3D #quakemap | dutchsinse/weather.com

Seismic Alert 24.08.2014:
Iceland's Bardarbunga Volcano has begun to erupt.  No Ash is being released at this time, yet a Sub Glacial Eruption is in Progress.
The Airspace over the Volcano is closed and Red Alert issued for the area.

Iceland's Meteorological Office says a small lava eruption has begun underneath a glacier at the #Bardarbunga volcano, prompting the country to close the airspace over the volcano, the Associated Press reports. Seismic data showed ice melting beneath the Vatnajokull glacier, but it remains unclear if or when the eruption would break through the ice, sending ash and steam into the air. Scientists say it could take up to a day for the ice to melt - or the eruption might remain contained beneath Europe's largest glacier."The thicker the ice, the more water there is, the more explosive it will be and the more ash-rich the eruption will be," Icelandic Meteorological Office vulcanologist Melissa Pfeffer said. - AP

Iceland's Bardarbunga Volcano Update: Eruption in Progress, Airspace Over Volcano Closed

Published: Aug 23, 2014, 5:39 PM EDT weather.com

Iceland's Meteorological Office says a small lava eruption has begun underneath a glacier at the Bardarbunga volcano, prompting the country to close the airspace over the volcano, the Associated Press reports. Seismic data showed ice melting beneath the Vatnajokull glacier, but it remains unclear if or when the eruption would break through the ice, sending ash and steam into the air. Scientists say it could take up to a day for the ice to melt - or the eruption might remain contained beneath Europe's largest glacier.
"
The thicker the ice, the more water there is, the more explosive it will be and the more ash-rich the eruption will be," Icelandic Meteorological Office vulcanologist Melissa Pfeffer said.
On Saturday, the agency changed the aviation alert for the volcano from orange to red, a move that signals an eruption is either imminent or already in progress.
The country also put its Coast Guard on alert, Bloomberg reports. Earthquakes had been happening "so quickly that it is difficult for the seismologist to discern individual events," a statement on the Met Office's web site reads. Thousands of small earthquakes have rattled the volcano, located deep beneath the Vatnajokull glacier, in the last week. 
The Civil Protection Department said scientists flew over the ice cap Saturday afternoon but saw no visible signs of the eruption on the surface of the glacier. Late Saturday the Met Office said there were "no signs of ongoing volcanic activity."
Still, authorities raised the country's aviation alert to red - the highest level on a five-point scale - indicating the threat of "significant emission of ash into the atmosphere."
Icelandic authorities declared a no-fly zone of 100 nautical miles by 140 nautical miles around the eruption as a precaution, but did not shut down air space over most of the island nation in the North Atlantic.
"All airports are open and flights are on schedule," said spokeswoman Olof Baldursdottir.
As concern increased last week over a possible eruption of the volcano, authorities evacuated tourists. The remote area, 200 miles (320 kilometers) east of the capital of Reykjavik, is uninhabited.
Iceland's Civil Protection Department says 300-500 people, mostly visitors, have been evacuated from the highlands north of the Vatnajokull glacier, which is popular with hikers.
Officials said Wednesday the measure was taken as a safety precaution, the Associated Press reports. Roads in the area have been closed in the event that an eruption would lead to flooding.
Air travel experts are also watching the situation closely. The volcano sits in a major flight path from the U.K. to North America, and an eruption would cause chaos.
In 2010, the ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland caused major air traffic disruptions that stranded 10 million travelers around the world.
The eruption comes after Iceland's Met Office raised the risk level of eruption to orange for Bardarbunga, meaning an eruption was possible but not imminent, Live Science reports. It is the fourth on the five-level scale, the report added.
The earthquake swarms began suddenly last Saturday and have been occurring in rapid succession since then, according to Live Science. The quakes were small – in the 3- to 4-magnitude range – but persistent enough to concern scientists about a possible eruption.
Bardarbunga is a subglacial stratovolcano located under Iceland's largest glacier, known as Vatnajokull, which adds another layer of intrigue to the situation, the Associated Press reports. If the eruption occurs outside the glacier, scientists expect minor ash emissions and only local problems. However, if the volcano blows inside the glacier, it would trigger ash sent high into the atmosphere and a bad scenario for air travel, seismologist Martin Hensch told the Associated Press.
When a volcano sends ash thousands of feet into the air, it isn't visibility concerns that ground planes, Time.com reports. It's actually the chemicals in the ash that can damage a plane's delicate engines, while the ventilation holes can become clogged and stall the aircraft.

Here is a main stream news report announcing that the Volcano erupted this morning, August 23 2014:

“One week after an earthquake swarm first warned of magma on the rise, a volcanic eruption has started near Iceland’s Baroarbunga volcano, the Icelandic Met Office announced today (Aug. 23).
The small-scale eruption is taking place northeast of Barðarbunga, underneath the Dyngjujökull glacier. Scientists estimate 492 to 1,312 feet of ice (150 to 400 meters) covers the emerging lava, the Met Office said in a statement. Even though no one can see the eruption, seismic signals indicate that ice is flashing into steam. This suggests lava has broken through to the surface, beneath the glacier.
The surface of Dyngjujokull glacier looked undisturbed during a survey flight today by the Iceland Coast Guard. There was no visible ash or melting ice, or cracks or sinkholes from the subglacial melting, the Met Office said. Radar and webcams also show no changes at Dyngjujokull soon after the eruption started at 2:10 p.m. local time (10:10 a.m. ET).”
