Friday, November 3, 2017, 15:27 - The Bardarbunga volcano in Iceland was hit by a series of four earthquakes last week.

University of Iceland Geophysics Professor Pll Einarsson told British tabloid the Daily Star that the volcano is getting ready to erupt in the next few years. 

The volcano is in a normal, non-eruptive state, reported the Daily Star, citing the Icelandic Meteorological Office.

When the Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted in 2010 it caused massive flight chaos, grounding most air traffic to and from Europe for several days.

The ash cloud from that eruption reached nearly 10,000 meters high, meaning planes in the impacted area were unable to fly, reported the BBC.
