Hi all

I am not home at the moment, so I can't give full detail. But there where t=
oday a series of earthquakes in a area that hasn't had earthquakes for at l=
east 11+ years and is not considered an active area, both in volcano activt=
ie and earthquakes. The biggest earthquake was 3.4M and was located 60 - 70=
 NW of Hvammstangi, where my station is. This appears to have started with =
a earthquake that was M3.0, there where several small earthquakes following=
 this, the smallest one detected by IMO was M1.9. I do not know at this mom=
ent how many earthquakes where detected in total by my system, but I can re=
cord earthquakes down to M1.4 at least at that range, problay a bit lower (=
my guess is M1.0 - M1.2).

For more info on this check IMO website here,

The earthquakes can also be seen on my tremor plots, here, http://www.simne=

The green star marks the location of the earthquakes. I am going to send tr=
aces of the largest earthquakes to the PSN event list when I get home, some=
times after 20th of September.
