    Background: MOUNT KRAFLA, NORTHEAST ICELAND

    Iceland is experiencing its fourth and largest volcanic eruption since 1975. Mount Krafla in the northeast of the island republic spewed forth a five kilometre (three mile) long volcanic eruption on September 4. One lava stream slicing through everything before it, seemed at first to be heading for the geothermal power station, but stopped short, although at one stage it appeared to be under threat. Eyewitnesses said the long rift opened in about ten minutes like a gigantic zipper. Geologist were able to give Icelanders five hours warning of the eruption.
