Earthquake swarm in Tjörnes Fracture Zone

Today (25-September-2013) an earthquake swarm started in Tjörnes Fracture Zone. This earthquake swarm started slowly and was mostly making small earthquakes early on. The largest earthquake today had the magnitude of 2.8 according to automatic results from Icelandic Meteorological Office. Currently the earthquake swarm is ongoing.

I am expecting this earthquake swarm to continue for the next hours at least. TFZ is highly active when it comes to earthquake activity so this earthquake swarm is no surprise. If any major earthquake take place in TFZ it’s possible to see them here on my webicorder website.
