Magnitude 3,3 earthquake east of Grímsey island

I am sorry for the late posting of this earthquake activity.

During the night of 8-April-2019 at 04:44 UTC an earthquake with magnitude 3,3 took place east of Grímsey island. This earthquake is part of a swarm earthquake activity in this area that started few weeks ago and is mostly ongoing as of writing this article.

The earthquake swarm west of Kópasker village continues and there continue to happen several earthquakes each day in that area. There are no clear signs showing that this earthquake activity is about to stop.
