Earthquakes do happen in this area once in a while. Earthquake swarms are not common in this area. Other then this earthquake, everything appears to be quiet in Langjökull glacier. It is possible to see the earthquake on my webicorders here.

Donation notice: Please remember to donate. I am getting rather broke this month after I paid all my bills. This happens since I am living on minimal income from Iceland. Thanks for the support.
