Earthquake swarms reported off North coast of Iceland

 
August 10, 2011ICELAND – A series of minor earthquakes occurred approximately 40 kilometers west of Grímsey island in north Iceland shortly after midnight yesterday with the strongest quake measuring three points on the Richter scale. A few sharp quakes followed but tremors have since decreased and their strength subsided, visir.is reports. At the same time a sharp earthquake hit east of Kópasker in northeast Iceland and a few weaker ones followed. Both these areas are known for seismic activity and earth scientists are not concerned that the recent tremors may lead to any more significant events. –Iceland Review
