Earthquake swarm in Reykjanes volcano

Yesterday (26. December 2022) an earthquake swarm took place in Reykjanes volcano. Just on the Reykjanestá area. This earthquake swarm was mostly in the ocean and on the Reykjanes ridge but some earthquakes where on the Reykjanes peninsula on land.

Largest earthquakes in this swarm had a magnitude of Mw3,0 and Mw3,2. I don’t think they were felt in nearby areas, that is mostly unpopulated.
