Earthquake swarm on Reykjanes peninsula

Today (3-Ocotber-2018) there has been a earthquake swarm on Reykjanes peninsula. Most earthquakes have been small and not found, but the largest earthquake in this earthquake swarm had a magnitude of 3,2.

The largest earthquake was felt in the blue lagoon. It seems that this earthquake swarm has stopped for now.

    Have I been cut off Jon ? Unable to comment on things for over a week?

  2. I made the decision to quit the job that I am in on Friday. I’ve had enough of it. That means from Friday I’ll be full time watching and writing again.

    The status of the donations is that I have only enough money to get me a new motherboard+cpu+memory+Windows 10 Pro and maybe a hard drive next month. If that is the case I am thinking about doing this because I need a computer for monitoring earthquake activity from my geophones that remain active (at least Böðvarshólar geophone. I am not sure about the internet connection status on Heklubyggð).
