VATNAJOKULL, ICELAND (TV2 ICELAND/CNN) – Iceland's largest volcano erupted early Friday.

The Bardarbunga volcano had been rumbling for days.

It finally erupted, following a series of earthquakes.

A red alert was issued briefly and has since been lowered.

There's no big ash cloud and the airspace near the volcano has been removed.
