The Meradaryl eruption tract, which was closed yesterday due to a yellow weather alert, has reopened to visitors this morning, RUV reports.

To celebrate reaching 200 RVK Newscast episodes on YouTube and another eruption on Meradaryl, we have a volcano-themed giveaway for you! Follow our Instagram page for more. Also, if you order a themed box by the 25th, Lava from a new eruption will be added for free to all orders.

Police stopped a man who tried to drive to the eruption yesterday. According to RÚV, everyone respected the closure and unlike previous closures, no one tried to sneak into the area.

Hike to the eruption with your dog

Matvælastofnun of the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority warns hikers not to bring pets to the eruption site, as the irritation can be stressful for dogs.

Additionally, rainwater in the area contains contaminants that can be harmful if dogs ingest it when they drink groundwater or lick their paws.

To keep pets safe if people choose to take them to the volcano, Matvælastofnun has four rules.

  • Don’t let your dog drink water from puddles or eat snow. Prepare a bowl of drinking water and provide it as needed.
  • Do not allow your dog to lick or scratch the fur after leaving the eruption area until it has been rinsed with water.
  • Always keep your dog on a leash. Flappy dogs can even run into valleys with gas or lava. A loose dog can cause danger or discomfort to others by losing balance or knocking over rocks along the way.
  • Do not bring your dog near the lava. Dogs are considerably shorter than humans, so they are exposed to more gas. Please go up the slope while receiving the wind on your back.
