Magnitude 3,4 earthquake on Reykjanes peninsula

Today (12-February-2018) at 01:14 UTC a magnitude 3,4 earthquake took place on Reykjanes peninsula. I am not sure if this earthquake was felt by any people in nearby villages and towns.

This earthquake was followed by several smaller earthquakes and largest aftershock had a magnitude of 1,6. More earthquake activity in this area is always a possibility.


Please remember to support my work with donations. Thanks for the support. ūüôā

I got a small loan from a family member to help me to pay the electric bill since I did not get donations in time in order to pay it. I did get one large donation and I am thankful for it since it helps me to buy food for a large portion of what remains of February.

Please note that from June-2018 all donations have be moved to my Icelandic bank account and my Icelandic Paypal account. Since I will be moving back to Iceland in June-2018 and I don’t have any plan on move away from Iceland after that (I’ll just tourist abroad more for a longer period of time instead).
