“Reykjavik Eartquake – Iminent Volcanic Eruption – Unprecedented Situation” ” More than a thousand tremors registered overnight.” “The worst news is that it is next door to the capital of Iceland.” “Eartquake activity has been huge.”
The swarm of earthquakes that began Wednesday in Southwest Iceland shows no signs of abating. More than a thousand tremors registered overnight, mbl.is reports. Eleven of the quakes were in excess of magnitude 3, and the largest one, of magnitude 4.9, woke many residents of Southwest Iceland up shortly after 1:30 am.
Bryndís Gísladóttir, natural hazards specialist at the Icelandic Met Office, states that while swarms of earthquakes that last this long are known in unhabited areas, such as by Askja and Herðubreið mountains, they are rare near inhabited areas.
She states that at present, there are no signs of any magma intrusion. See this.
Danger levels are in force in Reykjanes, the capital area and in Árnessýsla due to seismic activity on the Reykjanes peninsula, where thousands of earthquakes have occurred in recent days, the largest 5.7 on Wednesday.
The message therefore applies to all those who live in the danger area, and in fact more, says Víðir Reynisson, chief police officer at the civil defense. “People all over the country who live in earthquake zones must always be thinking about this.”
