Earthquake swarm north of Grímsey island

Today (19-October-2022) at 10:26 UTC an earthquake with magnitude of Mw3,8 took place and at 11:58 UTC an earthquake with magnitude of Mw3,3 took place at the same location. I don’t know if any of the larger earthquakes where felt. A swarm of smaller earthquakes took place and that activity is ongoing when this article is written.

This earthquake activity probably is continuation of an large earthquake swarm that started in that area in September. I don’t know if this is going to result in more stronger earthquakes, but that is a possibility.
