While the media’s eyes were glued to Iceland’s skyline, far to the east another volcano erupted.
Since the volcano is vast, you can’t necessarily see that much at the moment on webcams.Though two webcams from telecom network provider Mila seem to be showing some action, some blogs report that since those are being monitored by emergency response teams, it’s best to stick to You Tube and avoid bombarding the Mila webcams’ bandwidth.And of course, there’s the #bardarbunga hashtag on Twitter.For those interested in readings of the resulting seismic activity, this interactive visualization from 3d Bulge is the thing to watch: Mount Tavurvur Early this morning, Mount Tavurvur spouted fountains of lava and sent billows of smoke reportedly 60,000 feet (18.3 kilometers) into the air.
