Iceland volcano eruption creates rivers of lava for miles

VATNAJOKULL, Iceland (NBC) — A second eruption on Sunday from an Icelandic volcano sent rivers of lava flowing for miles. Plumes of ash and smoke could be seen for miles Sunday morning as the Holuhraun volcano continued to erupt.

On-lookers were able to get up-close to the lava streams as they slowly made their way down the mountainside. Some of the lava has reached as far as a mile away from the volcano.

Volcanologists warn this latest eruption could just signal an even bigger one in the coming days.
