This area of Torfajökull volcano has been having earthquake activity since January 27 when a magnitude 3,7 earthquake took place there. That activity was followed by a larger swarm of aftershocks than have so far happened. That might change without warning. This earthquake activity is interesting but I am not sure if it means anything, at least for now.

    1. Small earthquake? No big deal. That’s what volcanoes do. Your ecaptcha sucks by the way.

    He is also wrong. This is repeated earthquake activity at the same location and has been going on for several months.
