New earthquake swarms more west than current one have also been appearing, so far the earthquake activity has not lasted more than few hours before stopping again. Earthquake activity is common in this area, larger earthquake swarms do happen in this area every few years.

    Are you writing in your last post about the new view of the first picture of “Vefmyndavélar á Vaðöldu” @ ?

    • No, this was a statement by Icelandic Met Office. I am waiting for clarification on what that is.

      Please keep Bárðarbunga volcano comments in Bárðarbunga volcano articles.
