Update on Tjörnes Fracture Zone earthquake swarm

It has been almost a week since the earthquake swarm started in Tjörnes Fracture Zone. Today (30-September-2013) this activity continues. Since this earthquake swarm just around 1000 earthquakes (according to news) have so far been recorded by Icelandic Meteorological Office (when this words are written). The largest earthquakes have had the magnitude of 2.8, but no earthquake so far has reached the magnitude above 3.0.

Currently there is no sign of this earthquake swarm ending. So far it has not been felt by anyone and so far. I do not know how this earthquake swarm is going to develop. It’s however important to keep an eye on this earthquake swarm, since it’s impossible to know what happens next in this area.
