Photos: Landslide leaves open wound in mountain
These photographs of Fagraskógarfjall mountain were captured yesterday by photographer Mihails Ignats and they show how the whole side of the mountain collapsed, leaving what looks like an open wound.
The river has found a new channel and is now flowing from the landslide into the Tálma river which then returns to join the Hítá river.
According to satellite photographs the landslide measures 1.8 square kilometres.
The Hítará river flows from the lagoon formed above the landslide and then into the river Tálmá. Farmers fear damage to vegetation due to this. Ljósmynd/Mihails Ignats
