Iceland Strikes Back

Iceland tourism chiefs trying to calm volcano fears

"While the BBC article is nearly all true, geophysicists in Iceland point out that the phrase “an eruption may be imminent” means very little. An eruption could happen next week, or Katla may continue to rumble quietly for several more years before blowing.

In the meantime the South Iceland tourism industry is adamant that people should not avoid visiting Iceland. There is always the threat of an eruption in Iceland and they very often come as a complete surprise, they argue."

That's an interesting angle to take in "reassuring" people...

best,
