Over 500 earthquakes in Reykjanes swarm

The swarm of earthquakes that originate in Fagradalsfjall mountain on the Reykjanes peninsula are now on the decrease. A few earthquakes occurred yesterday morning but they’re diminishing.

According to the Iceland Met Office, over 500 earthquakes have been measured in the swarm which began Wednesday morning at 7 am. Three earthquakes were clearly felt in Reykjavik, especially the one at 13:55 which measured 4.1.

Geophysicist Páll Einarsson said speaking to today’s Morgunblaðið that the earthquakes are at the point where the tectonic plates meet. He said that although earthquakes in Reykjanes are common, the swarm yesterday was one of the biggest that they’ve measured in a few years.

6.7 Earthquake hits the Dodecanese Islands – Turkish border region.

At least two tourists have been killed and around 200 others injured after a powerful earthquake shook the Greek Islands and Turkish coast, triggering a small tsunami.

The 6.7-magnitude quake struck in the Aegean Sea on Thursday night south of the Turkish city of Bodrum and east of the small Greek island of Kos – both areas popular with British holidaymakers.

The earthquake triggered a small tsunami that caused flooding in Bodrum and parts of Kos, which took the brunt of the impact with significant damage to buildings.

Tens of thousands of tourists spent the night outdoors on Kos, many sleeping on sunbeds along beaches and in squares.
