Hi all

According to the experts at Icelandic Met Office (IMO). They think that
there is a risk of a large earthquake going to strike the SISZ (Southern
Iceland Seismic Zone) soon. They base there opinion on this data.
Yesterday there was a swarm of about 20 small earthquakes 3 km WSW of
Hverager­i (town), all of this earthquakes where smaller then 1.0Ml in
size. They can't rule out the option that this is pre-activie of a
larger earthquake that might strike there. I assume that they draw this
from what was learned in the year 2000 in the large earthquakes that did
hit the SISZ then. There is good report on those earthquakes here
http://hraun.vedur.is/ja/skyrslur/June17and21_2000/index.html

I wanted to let you all know of this, in case something happens. I can
forward more info on this if i learn something new.

Regards.
