  1. Thank you for the updates! The one on the recent finds on Öraefajökull was especially interesting.

    What happened in the region of Torfajökull/Myrdalsjökull at about 16:23?
    Drumplots seemed to stop recording, but Early alerts has a really strong reading.

  2. 2 minutes later I checked IMO main website and found the answer…
    It was just a bit odd that many drumplots stopped recording about the same time.

    I can’t remember the last time there was a green star in Torfajökull.
