Flow of volcanic mud causes Iceland floodwater concern

eyjafjall1-littleWater flow has increased significantly in the Svadbaelisa river in South Iceland near the Eyjafjallajokull volcano. The river was the scene of a mud flood earlier this week.

Workers have been cleaning the mud off the road near homes at Lambafell, where fears remain that water could inundate the houses.

The river itself is filled with mud, which has caused the water level to rise, causing it to break its banks in a few places, including over the road at the Onundarhorni Farm.
