Uncertainty phase because of seismic activity in mount Hekla
The National Commissioner of the Icelandic Police (NCIP) and the Police commissioner at Hvolsvöllur declare an uncertainty phase (lowest level of warning), because of seismic activity in mount Hekla.
The Icelandic Met Office has informed the Civil Protection and Emergency Management of NCIP about unusual seismic activity in mount Hekla. The Icelandic Met Office has raised the ICAO aviation color code to yellow concerning air traffic, which means that mount Hekla is showing an unusual activity.
Uncertaintyphase means that supervision has been raised on that course of events that may threaten public health and safety, or that environment or inhabited area may be threatened. To declare an uncertainty face is a part of work process in the setup of public safety to secure a formal communication between response teams and to secure dissemination of information.
In light of all of this the National Commissioner of the Icelandic Police and the Police commissioner at Hvolsvöllur would warn people from hiking on mount Hekla while this uncertainty phase is in force.
