  1. Good morning Jón,

    What is happening between Hekla and Torfajökull volcano? A MW 3.7 with a depth of 5,8 km.
    Looks like an interesting development.

    Have a good sunday, kind regards, Henk Weijerstrass, Holland

    1. This is in Torfajökull volcano. This seems to be a normal earthquake swarm so far. I am going to be writing a article about this in the next few hours (soon as I’ve gotten me something to eat).
