The Day the Mountain of Fire Was Born

Eldfell is Icelandic for “mountain of fire.” The volcano named Eldfell came into being suddenly on January 23, 1973. It was a sight to see, but dangerous to be around. The people of Heimaey didn’t abandon their island home to the volcano, however. They made it work for them. Read all about the Eldfell volcano in an article I wrote at mental_floss.
