Today (13-October-2019) at 17:44 UTC a magnitude Mw3,1 earthquake took place in Hamarinn volcano (no Global Volcanism Page, see Bárðarbunga volcano). There has been some earthquake activity in this area for last several weeks.

Last time there was this increase in earthquake activity in Hamarinn volcano an eruption happened in July 2011 without warning and no earthquake activity before it. That eruption remains unconfirmed by the professionals but I hold that we it did happened based on documented data (harmonic tremor, glacier flood).
Currently I only need 37259 ISK (263€/$292USD) to pay for the shipping of my belongings to Denmark. If all the amount is paid in time there won’t be any storage charge or at most a really small one (next week). I have to pay the storage charge before I get my belongings delivered. I unfortunately have to use tiny amount of this for transport and food. I plan on having that as minimal as possible. Thanks for the support. 🙂
Today (13-October-2019) a minor earthquake swarm took place in Tungnafellsjökull volcano. After the eruption in Bárðarbunga volcano there has been a ongoing earthquake activity in Tungnafellsjökull volcano, why that it is remains unexplained. There are suggestion in recorded data that magma is moving inside the volcano at slow rate but that remains unclear for now.

Tungnafellsjökull volcano has no known eruption history in last 12000 years so its impossible to know what signs if any appears before an eruption happens. Currently there are no clear signs that Tungnafellsjökull volcano is preparing for an eruption. This might just be after-effect of the eruption in Bárðarbunga volcano that placed a lot of crustal strain on Tungafellsjökull volcano and resulted in a lot of earthquake activity in that volcano during the early start of that eruption in Bárðarbunga volcano.
Currently there is only need for about 37.259 ISK (263€/$292USD) until I have all the money needed for paying for moving of my belongings and to get them delivered to me on time without having to pay a lot of storage charges (if any). Unfortunately I have to use tiny amount of this money to pay for transport and little food costs in Iceland and Denmark. I am going to keep that amount to absolute minimal amount. Thanks for the support. 🙂
Today (12-October-2019) during the night there was a small earthquake activity in Krafla volcano. This earthquake activity is minor and largest earthquake had a magnitude of Mw1,0 and all other earthquakes were smaller in magnitude.

There is a chance this earthquake activity is the result of water being pumped into the crust under high pressure. If that’s not the case this is just normal tectonic earthquake activity that sometimes happens in this area.
As I did explain here in this article my move to Denmark has hit a little problem. The problem is that my cost estimates were under the plan that I had and now I am currently in need of 375€ in order the pay for the cost of moving my belongings to Denmark. Any support to help me cover the remaining cost is welcomed. The sooner I can pay the transport cost the cheaper it is going to be for me, since storage charges are going to be added if I have to wait until 1st November to pay the transport cost of my belongings. This also delays me in many ways since all my hardware is now in transit and I can’t have access to it until I pay the transport cost of my belongings. Thanks for the support. 🙂
I hate to ask for this but I don’t have any other options. I also hate the fact that I am poor.
Currently I am moving to Denmark and I have hit a problem. The total cost of moving my belongings is 329.140 ISK (2.390€/2.642USD). I can cover about half my self. I get a little loan increase from my bank and what is missing is 88.446 ISK (643€/705USD) to fully pay the bill for the moving. I won’t get my belongings until I pay the moving cost in full.
If anyone can help me with this with a donation that is welcomed. This high cost was unexpected and I was not expecting it to get this high. Thanks for the help. 🙂
I managed to make a deal with the company that is moving my belongings to Denmark. I can pay at the latest on 1st of November but this adds storage fees on top for 11 to 14 days until I get my belongings delivered. I have also seen that my October plan is not going according to what I had hoped for so any donation towards helping me in October are also welcomed.
The amount I need to pay the moving bill is half way there already. What is missing is just 53.048 ISK (375€/$413USD). If this happens quickly enough then I won’t have to pay any storage cost of my belongings. That cost is 417 DKK (55,82€) a week and starts counting soon as my belongings are in my moving company house (after clearing customs).
The amount needed until I can pay the transport cost of my belongings is now 37.259 ISK or 263€/$292USD. I am having tiny problems with money on how to buy food for the rest of the month because of this whole thing being such a large problem for me. There are cheap options for me in Denmark when it comes to food that I am going to use since the are low priced food stores in Sønderborg. The main thing for me now is to pay the transport bill so I can get my belongings before I have to start paying storage charges (417 DKK/55,83€ a week) and I can’t do that without donation. There have been negative comments about this situation and me asking for help. I’ve decided to ignore those comments.
Thanks for the support. 🙂

At the writing of this article there is no change in harmonic tremor on SIL stations around Hekla volcano. Icelandic Met Office and Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management are both monitoring the situation in Hekla volcano.
Please remember to support my work. I am also currently moving to Denmark and that is really expensive so any help with that is welcomed. Thanks for the support. 🙂
Today (4-Oktober-2019) at 16:31 UTC a magnitude Mw3,8 earthquake took place in Bárðarbunga volcano. This is the second earthquake in Bárðarbunga volcano in less than 24 hours. Like the earlier earthquake there has been no aftershock activity following this earthquake.

There has been minor earthquake activity in other parts of Bárðarbunga volcano. I don’t know if that activity is connected to the stronger earthquake activity.
Today (3-oktober-2019) at 20:33 UTC a magnitude 3,1 earthquake took place in Bárðarbunga volcano.

This earthquake activity looks like normal earthquake activity in Bárðarbunga volcano since the end of the eruption in February 2015. No other earthquake activity has happened after this earthquake at the writing of this article.
Please remember to support my work with donations. Thanks for the support. 🙂
During the night (29-September-2019) a small swarm of earthquake took place not far from Eldeyjarboði on Reykjanes ridge. Largest earthquakes had the magnitude of Mw3,1 and Mw3,3. This earthquake swarm is far from Iceland and recording of this earthquake swarm is poor because due to distance from the SIL network.

This earthquake swarm seems to be over and no earthquakes have been recorded for the last few hours. Detection is smaller earthquakes is limited and that might be giving the wrong impressions about this activity.
Today (11-September-2019) at 09:42 UTC a magnitude 3,0 earthquake took place in Hengill volcano. The largest earthquake was felt in Hveragerði village. They also felt a minor magnitude Mw1,7 that happened at 05:22 UTC. The reason why that earthquake was felt is because it took place inside the town under some person house (or close to someone house).

Earthquake activity is a regular feature in this area.
A small earthquake swarm took place this morning (11-September-2019) just north of Grindavík village this morning. A magnitude Mw3,4 earthquake took place at 06:06 UTC and was felt in Grindvík village.

This earthquake activity is normal tectonic earthquake activity.
