Earthquakes in Eyjafjallajökull. Volcano Video

A few earthquakes were detected in the eastern part of Eyjafjallajökull between three and four o’clock. The quakes were not very big, the biggest just below 3 on the Richter scale.

According to the Weather bureau this seems to indicate that there is still plenty of activity under the surface of the glacier. This would then be connected to the eruption in Fimmvörduhals. However, the eruption itself shows no sign of change. It should be remembered that when the new crater was formed yesterday there was no earthquake activity.

This video was taken by ruv.is just after the new crater was formed yesterday evening.
