    will do my best to translate for u.


    There are indications that the volcano Hekla is ready for an outbreak, warns Icelandic geophysicist. The volcano is Iceland's most active.

    The movements around Hekla has been unusual over the last three days. Measurements show that there probably is magma moving in the volcano, said Professor Pall Einarsson at the University of Iceland.

    Einarsson added that it does not necessarily mean a big explosion, but the volcano appears to be "ready for eruption."

    Here is another link to it

    Fears that the "gate to hell" will explode
    The Icelandic volcano Hekla can have an outbreak at any time, according to geophysicist.

    Hekla, Iceland's most active volcano, is approaching a new outbreak. Belives a professor of geophysics Pall Einarsson at the University of Iceland.

    The movements around Hekla has been unusual in recent days. Measurements show that there probably is magma moving in the volcano, says Einarsson to AFP.

    Moreover, he says that Hekla Mountain has expanded in recent days, and that magma build-up


    Dagbladet has been in contact with the Nordic Volcanological Center in Iceland, but is told that all relevant professionals are located at the volcano outside telephone connection. Dagbladet also stated that everyone expects something to happen over the next few days.

    Hekla is located about 150 km east of the capital, Reykjavik, and was in the Middle Ages called the "Gateway to Hell" colloquially in Iceland and Europe.

    The so-called stratovolcano has been about 20 recorded eruptions since the year 874, the last took place in 1991 and 2000. The last one was short and only lasted a couple of weeks in February and March.

    Some outbreaks have been catastrophic, "The first eruption in historical times (1104 AD) was a huge explosion that destroyed Þjórsárdalur Valley," said University of Iceland. The outbreaks in 1510, 1963 and 1766 are mentioned as particularly devastating.

    Hekla has traditionally been highly secretive, with little seismic activity in advance of an outbreak. Warning signs occur typically 30-80 minutes before it bangs
