Fire meets ice in Iceland - level 2
Iceland is an island where ice meets fire. It is 190 kilometres long and up to 25 kilometres wide.
A volcano on the island began to erupt five months ago. Around 50 to 70 cubic metres of lava flows out of the volcano every second. It is Iceland’s largest eruption since 1783. People report small earthquakes in the area every day.
Officials keep tourists and hikers away from the volcano, and the local villages are prepared for evacuation.
Difficult words: erupt (to let out lava), lava (very hot liquid rock), earthquake (when the earth shakes).
