The police has decided to close all access to the Meradalir eruption, starting at 05:00 this morning. In the afternoon, the police will assess the situation and possibly reopen the area, based on advice from the Met Office.

Inclement weather is expected in the area and the Icelandic Met Office has issued a weather warning. Strong south-easterly winds and rain are expected, with limited visibility. 

In other access news, drivers are reminded not to park on Suðurstrandarvegur road, where clear signs are posted to discourage parking. Police will be issuing parking fines in the area.
