Hi all

According to the news the flood is still growing. There are also
appearing harmonic tremors on the Icelandic Met Office seismometer at
this moment. That indicates that there is something going on in
Vatnajokull at the moment. The harmonic tremors are belived to come from
water that is under pressure and is cracking the glacier. This progress
is also releasing sulphur dioxide into the air.
