Occurring early Thursday morning about 40 km southwest of Reykjavík, the eruption is officially over, according to the ;Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO).
Like the two previous eruptions, on December 18 and January 14, it took place near the town of Grindavík, whose 4,000 inhabitants were evacuated on November 11.
According to the IMO, however, lava could erupt again in the area soon, with GPS data suggesting the immediate resumption of ground swelling and therefore magma accumulation in the Svartsengi region.
