Anybody planning on flying to/from Europe needs to come up with alternates as this could severely disrupt the main trans-atlantic flight schedules.
I love Iceland.
Icelanders are on shaky ground!
Icelanders live in a culture that almost happily and very flexibly live near great danger, and as a result have a very stable sane attitude about emergencies and listening to civil survival orders.
I love Iceland!
While the causes are entirely different there is not much difference between living in Iceland and Israel. If you can’t stand the risk, get out if possible, if not, practice a sound safety protocol. I remember a day in Budapest in 1944 or 45, age 6. We were living in a high-rise when an explosion, probably a bomb, shattered the glass windows. The next thing I remember is telling my mother it was time to get to the bomb shelter. Somehow it just becomes part of the routine of living.

As a novel it is a page turner that I finished in under two days. As history, it was painful for me for its historical accuracy.
Apparently, no-one reads history anymore, or geography. PBS ran a British produced series a few years ago “World On Fire”. Among the various story lines is one about a Polish soldier and his Sergent, who escape Danzig. Next we see them in the Russian occupied part of Poland. Then they make contact with BEF forces in northern France. Seems that these two Polish men, to get to the BEF, would need to go through both German occupied Poland, and Germany. Plenty of other gigantic continuity issues. Like a British navy seaman who is stranded in the pocket at Dunkirk, ending up in an American run hospital in Paris, without being captured by the Germans, in between.
The second season is running now. First season was at least watchable, if you ignore the continuity issues. This season zux.
