Glacial outburst flood in Múlakvísl is slowly declining.

There is still lots of water in the river.

People are advised to stay away from the river due to gas pollution, the river is showing a dark colour and smells of sulphur.

The Met office, Police, Civil Protection and Road administration continue to follow the situation.
