Largest earthquake in this swarm had a magnitude of 2,1 and 1,8. All other earthquakes where smaller in magnitude. This also suggests that summer earthquake activity in Katla volcano is starting and more earthquake swarms like this can be expected in next few months.

  1. Today annoyance for me. Tooth that I knew that had to be removed might have to go out sooner than I wanted because it is really getting badly damaged (not worth repairing). I hope it can hold out until June because I really can’t afford having it removed today.

    If I have to have it removed in Denmark that is going to cost me at minimum of 1500 DKK + drugs that stop me from feeling when the tooth is removed. I can’t afford that now.

    /rant over.

      Clove oil works good on a damaged tooth. My wife is away in Mexico and she has a broken tooth that has to come out. It started hurting and she put clove oil on it. The pain went away.

    If you have a really damaged tooth there is no other option than to have it removed.

    • This is a end tooth that has already been heavily repaired. No point in spending money on repairing it again. I’ve gotten the close to estimated price on tooth removal in Iceland. I can pay it in June, plus, in Iceland I get 70% discount since I am on social welfare. I don’t have to apply for that like in Denmark.

  4. I made a video and put it on youtube, https://youtu.be/M83IXk9JDJw

    Jón, exactly, if you have an EHIC would not make that much of a difference. (It’s for the EEA citizens plus Switzerland and free of charge.)
    The EHIC covers treatment that is medically necessary until your planned return home.
