Iceland’s’s largest volcano and second highest peak could be set to erupt after several strong earthquakes struck the region.  Last week the 6,591ft tall Bardarbunga volcano was shaken by four of the largest earthquakes since its last eruption was sparked in August 2014. A lava field and huge volumes of sulphur dioxide erupted from the volcano, plummeting air quality in Iceland and reaching as the UK and Ireland,

according to the nation’s Met Office. The eruption period was not officially declared over until six months later in February 2015. Now experts fear that several earthquakes, measuring magnitude 3.9, 3.2, 4.7 and 4.7 on the Richter scale, which struck the caldera region last week may be signs of an imminent eruption from the 10,000-year-old Bardarbunga volcano.
