    ... famine and fluoride poisoning after the fissure eruptions ensued. Around 80% of sheep, 50% of cattle and 50% of horses died from the 8 million tons of hydrogen fluoride that were released.

    The parish priest and dean of Vestur-Skaftafellssřsla Jˇn SteingrÝmsson (1728–1791), grew famous because of the eldmessa ("fire sermon") that he delivered on 20 July 1783. The people of the small settlement of KirkjubŠjarklaustur prayed as the lava threatened the town. ...
