This article had a lot of content directly derived from evacuation data or quotes from vulcanologists. They say that although seismic activity is decreasing, there is still a significant chance of an eruption. With anecdotes from Iceland citizens, this article gave a great perspective on the situation. I have personally been interested in the siesmic activity since yesterday and this article was a good update.
