Tourists have been flocking to the eruption site. Even though the walking paths are closed today after the new crater opened up many watch from afar in Fljótshlíd. Since today the walking paths are closed many are enjoying other sites in south Iceland, includin Seljalandsfoss, the waterfall you can walk behind, and the folk museum at Skógar.
A few days ago the BBC sent its crew over the eruption. They hired a helicopter at Hótel Rangá and flew over the site. The video gives a spectacular indication of the natural forces at work.
That video is no longer available but watch this instead. From Icelandic television.
