Earthquake activity north of Grindavík town

Yesterday (14-February-2022) at 17:27 UTC an earthquake with magnitude of Mw3,0 took place north of Grindavík town. This earthquake is in Reykjanes volcano, but might also be part of inflation related earthquakes that happen because of inflation in Fagradalsfjall volcano.

This earthquake doesn’t appear to have any aftershock activity, but that might be a temporary quiet time, since because of magma inflation, this area is now really active.
