Iceland's Hekla volcano is it "ready to blow" ?

Páll Einarsson, professor in geophysics towarned to not visit Hekla this summer.

According Páll Einarsson, "pressure readings within the volcano, which last erupted in 2000, is now higher than before the two previous eruptions, meaning that it can become operational with little warning.
Not only, Hekla has become a popular tourist destination, but also 20 to 30 planes fly over the top every day ... it's a dangerous time to be considered. "

By cons, or the University of Iceland, nor the Met Office did report of imminent eruption signs.
However stay tuned monitoring sites because the Hekla volcano remains unpredictable!
