Today has been interesting in regards to the earthquake activity in Krýsuvík volcano. But today there have been well over 800 earthquakes (far as I can tell). Over the past few hours the earthquake activity has slowed down a little bit. But far as I can tell it is far from over and might start to pick up again at any time and with no warning at all.
Icelandic Met Office released a picture of the earthquake activity in Krýsuvík volcano so far for the year 2011.
Black circles are earthquakes up to 26th of February. Red ones are earthquakes on the 27th February. Picture is from Icelandic Met Office web site and copyright of this picture belongs to them.

I expect that this earthquake activity is going to continue in the coming hours. But it is impossible to know when it stops.
