360° - GEO Report observes the inhabitants of Iceland during their everyday lives between carrying on life as normal and preparing for a catastrophe.

In spring 2010, ash clouds from the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökul, brought air traffic over half of Europe to a standstill. In Iceland itself, the area around the village Vik, at the outermost southern tip of the island, was affected the most.

Apart from problems from pervasive ash, Vik got off lightly after the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull. But what would happen if the considerably bigger neighbouring volcano, Katla, erupts, which is capped by a huge glacier? A scenario the town's inhabitants shudder to think about.
