Watch the Eruption Live (If and When it Starts)

If you are interested in seeing an eruption start you might be in luck. A webcam has been placed at Grímsvötn, approximately 30 kilometers (20 miles) from the crater where the eruption might start.

New earthquake meters were also put in place yesterday. Björn Oddsson, a specialist at the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management in Iceland put the camera in place yesterday, reports.

You can view the webcam here.
