Tens of minor earthquakes occurred north of Siglufjörður in North Iceland yesterday, following an earthquake of a 3.2 magnitude which hit at 8 am in the morning. The epicenter of the series was in the eastern Eyjafjarðaráll, where seismic activity has been ongoing since October 20.
In the past days there has hardly been any activity north of Gjögurtá, in the far western part of the Húsavík-Flatey fault. Earthquakes that occurred there one week ago caused the Civil Protection Department to declare a level of uncertainty in the area.
An earthquake swarm was also picked up on the ocean floor west of Kópasker in Northeast Iceland yesterday, the largest of which was of a 2.7 magnitude (originally reported to have a magnitude of 3.0). However, the seismic activity there is not considered to be connected to the activity in Eyjafjarðaráll.
