The Gateway to Hell is About to Open

One of Iceland's fiercest volcanoes, Hekla, is poised to erupt. 

Deemed the "Gateway to Hell" by Icelanders in the Middle Ages, Hekla is one of Iceland's most active volcanoes, having erupted some 20 times over the past millennium, most recently on February 26, 2000.

The volcano is located about 70 miles east of Reykjavik.
