(Before It’s News)

August 2014ICELAND – Strange rumblings coming from the tuya Herðubreið are confounding observers as to their possible source. Vísir reports that visitors to the mesa-shaped volcano in northeast Iceland have been unable to determine if the persistent rumblings coming from Herðubreið are being caused by an avalanche, landslide, or something else entirely. Rangers around Herðubreið were the first to announce the rumblings, which lasted about 30 seconds. Yesterday, Icelandic rescuers who had been searching for a group of French tourists found them at the foot of Herðubreið safe and sound, although they said there had been an avalanche. News of the avalanche was reported, but upon further inspection, no evidence of an avalanche could be found – except for the rumbling. Avalanches have been reported from mountains all over Iceland recently, which is highly unusual for the summer months. Tómas Jóhannesson, a meteorologist at the Met Office, told reporters that they intend to get to the bottom of the mystery. The volcano was shaken by a seismic swarm of nearly 5,300 quakes in 2007. The volcano had a swarm of about 100 quakes in May and another one of less intensity in July of 2014. The volcano’s last eruption was during the Last Glacial Period more than 110,000 to 12,000 years ago. It was one of the largest eruptions known in Iceland’s history.  –Grapevine TEP
