As someone who is interested and visits Iceland I’ve been watching the progress of the Bárðarbunga (Bardarbunga) Volcano with great interest. As of this post, and after a false report, the Volcano is not yet erupting. Follows are some links to keep up with the eruption – if there is one.
(early September) The eruption started in Holuhraun lava field, north of Vatnajökull (ice cap) along a dyke that is fed by the same magma chamber as the Bárðarbunga volcano. Bárðarbunga lies under the central ice cap. Thus far the eruption has been along the dyke and adjacent to the Ice cap. A sub-glacial eruption would cause flooding and ash production as seen in at Eyjafjallajökull.
