Church in Vík village
Church in Vík village Víkurkirkja (Vikurkirkja) is the name of the town's church, located high on a hill. An eruption of Katla Volcano could melt enough ice to trigger an enormous flash flood, potentially large enough to obliterate the entire town. The church is believed to be the only building that would survive such a flood. Thus, the people of Vík practice periodic drills and are trained to rush to the church at the first sign of an eruption.
