Earthquake activity is increasing again in this area of Reykjanes peninsula as inflation has resumed but at lower rate then before. That might change as the time goes on. I was unable to record this earthquakes because I am having a major problems with my earthquake computers and Microsoft has disabled activation of Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems so I can’t use them. I am working on a solution but it going to take a little time to implement properly.


Please remember to support my work with donations. At the writing of this article I am completely broke and there are still few days left in March until April starts. Thanks for the support. 🙂

  1. I find it interesting that two systems are having earthquake activity at once. They’re so close I think they must be related (but maybe not).

    How is the covid-19 situation in Iceland? We’ve been distancing for three days and I’m already done with it

  2. Do you think something will come of this Jon? As for COVID-19, I’ve been to the pub twice this week.

    1. Yes, this is going to result in a eruption it is just a question about time and when that might be is a question I do not have an answer to.

      As for covid-19. Don’t go to the pub until the whole thing or a vaccination is available (earliest in 18 to 20 months). This is going to be difficult time and a long time because of this pandemic.
