More than 200 earthquakes rattle Iceland since 48 hours – New underwater volcanic eruption?


Approximately 200 earthquakes have been recorded off Reykjanes peninsula in Southwest Iceland since June 30, 2015.

The strongest quakes have been about M4.5 magnitude. Sign of a new underwater volcanic event?

Since June 30 2015, the Reykjanes Peninsula has experienced hundreds of earthquakes.


This dramatic earthquake swarm could actually announce a new submarine event after a few months of volcanic quiet.

However, such seismic events are common and most of the time don’t lead to a new eruption.

Let the time tell, but I do believe something is going on in the area. What about you?
