Strong earthquake swarm on Reykjanes Ridge

Few moments ago (around 20:15 UTC) a strong earthquake swarm started on Reykjanes Ridge. This earthquake swarm is deep on the Reykjanes Ridge. Strongest earthquakes so far are ML3,1 on Reykjanes Ridge.

I am going to post updates as the swarm progresses. Some of the earthquakes can be seen on my webicoders here. But the distance is great so only strongest earthquakes are going to appear there.

Update at 21:06 UTC.

EMSC reports that the strongest earthquake was Mb4.8 while USGS is reporting that earthquake at Mb4.9 in size. The earthquake activity in this area is ongoing when this is written.

The year 2012 myths – Official blog stand notice from me (Jón Frímann)

I am getting a really tiered of the year 2012 myths that are making there way into discussion here. This nonsense has been outright debunked long time ago as can be seen here.

So this is a official policy notice in regards to this blog of my part. Any comment that refers to the year 2012 myth in part or a whole is going to be removed in all future blog post. If you feel the need to discuses such matters do it somewhere else. This is not the place for it. As this is serious blog about serious volcanoes in Iceland (and sometimes in other part of the world too).

We might put up a idea on volcano activity here. But that is all good. As such ideas can often be wrong. But that is part of the process of learning. But repeating nonsense is not. It is a waste of time and energy to do so. Both mine and other readers and commenter’s on this blog.
