Kötlugosið 1918 er talið vera hið 21. í eldstöðinni eftir landnám. Fyrir tilviljun fórst enginn maður í þessum miklu hamförum. Gosið hófst 12. október og varð meðal stærstu Kötlugosa síðan land byggðist. Jarðskjálftar fundust í Mýrdal um tveimur tímum áður en gosmökkurinn sást rísa frá Kötlu.

Jökulhlaupið fór að mestu niður hjá Hjörleifshöfða en austasti hluti þess fór niður farveg Hólmsár við Hrífunes og niður farveg Skálmar í Álftaveri. Við Hjörleifshöfða var mikill gangur í hlaupinu 14. október en síðan hjaraði það út á einni viku. Gosið stóð til 4. nóvember og voru margir dagar dimmir af ösku þetta örlagaríka haust. Meginhluti gjóskunnar barst til norðausturs og olli tjóni í Skaftártungu þaðan sem íbúar flúðu um tíma frá nyrstu bæjum.
