After successive earthquakes in Iceland, it was stated that they were caused by the Agradalsfjall volcano. It is noteworthy that the earthquakes that occurred near Grindavik on the Reykjanes peninsula started to rise with the movements of the magma as it overcomes the obstacles in front of it and approaches the eruption. Photographs showing ground ruptures have come from the region.
The iconic Bluee Lagoon Resort, one of Iceland's most important tourism regions, is located where the movement is taking place. Residents of Grindavik were asked to leave the area while an orange level emergency was declared.
While evacuations continue, nearly 2 thousand earthquakes have occurred in the region recently. Some roads were closed due to falling lava rocks, while the main highway had large cracks.
Blue Lagoon Resort closed most of the lagoons to tourists to avoid the rocks. When the earthquakes started to increase, all guests fled and the facilities were closed. Then the expected happened and the explosion took place.
Movement also started in Italy. In Naples, one of the most active volcanic areas in the region, an estimated 3 million people live near the volcano zone. Evacuation routes are now being planned there as well.
On the other hand, the famous Mount Etna in Sicily is signaling that it is no longer in hibernation. There are hints that an aggressive eruption is imminent. There have been sporadic eruptions in the southeastern crater. There is concern that the level of magma is high and could rise to the surface at any time. It is certain that these explosions will increase within days and a very violent activity will follow. So Etna has woken up.
While Iceland and Italy are worried about volcanic activity, there are unusual developments in other parts of the world. An increase in volcano eruptions can also be expected on a planet that is warming due to 'human-induced' climate change.
According to the Smithsonian Institution's Global Volcanism Program, there are 46 volcanoes that could erupt as of October 11, 2023. While small eruptions continue, an average of around 20 active eruptions occur daily.
Indonesia, which is also among the most active volcanic regions of the world, ranks first with 9 eruptions. 2 of these erupted today. Other areas with high activity are Russia, Papua New Guinea, Japan and the USA.
According to Dr. Tom Pfeiffer from Volcano Study, the volcanoes that are likely to erupt are as follows:

It's in the Grindavik area. The evacuation of residents has begun.4 cameras are trying to identify the potential eruption zone. This volcano was silent for 800 years until it erupted last year.
