TFZ earthquake swarm update on 06.12.2012

The earthquake swarm on TFZ continues to this day. It has been ongoing for more then one month already. The largest earthquake in the past few days has been a earthquake with the magnitude of ML2.7. Most other earthquakes that have been taking place are in the magnitude range of ML0.0 and up to ML2.7. Activity in this area happens with high and lows. With latest high being just few days ago. This continued earthquake activity shows that this area continues to be at risk of large earthquake.

Earthquake activity in TFZ today (06.12.2012). Not many new earthquake have taken place since yesterday (05.12.2012. Picture above). But there is regular activity in this area and that makes the earthquake swarm continuous. Copyright of this image belongs to Icelandic Meteorological Office.

Currently there are no signs that this earthquake swarm is about to end. Even if there is a drop in activity for a day or two. It continues as it has been doing since 21st October 2012. I am going to post updates on this earthquake swarm regularly. If anything major happens. I am going to post update soon as I can do so.
