Large landslide in east Iceland (Ímatindi, Vaðlavík)

According to Rúv News an landslide fell in East Iceland last week (best guess). This appears to be an large landslide. It did closed down an road close to two abandoned farms in the nearby area. This landslide appears to have taken place due to heavy snow and spring melt in this area. I don’t know if there is any risk of more such landslides going to take place at this area, there is an risk of new landslides in this same area for now, at least that is my best educated guess.

Pictures of this landslide can be found here on Rúv News. All the text in that news is in Icelandic.
