A farmer living close to the glacier-volcano Eyjafjallajökull in south Iceland told the newspaper DV yesterday that he had heard the glacier rumble and that the noise was similar as to when it last erupted in the spring of 2010, just not as loud.

Gudmundsson said more people living in Rangárthing eystra have reported rumblings in the glacier under such wind conditions.
“I don’t know what it means and it is difficult to predict anything. It started without notice last time and we know that the crater is still open and boiling,” he added.
According to information from the Icelandic Meteorological Office, there is nothing that indicates increased seismic activity in Eyjafjallajökull. Earthquakes are monitored around the clock at the Meteorological Office.
