Hi all

Iceland appears to be going trugh a rather strange event. This week,
that is Monday to today (16.01.2007) there have only been like 10
earthquakes in whole Iceland. Usaual by this time of the week, IMO has
recored learny 50 - 100 earthquakes, in a normal week. I call this
earthquake lockin, that means that something in the earth crust is stuck
and prevents earthquakes. What it is anybody guess. This was ongoing all
of 2006 and it is still going on. I don't think this good sign at all.
Whatever happen, there is a good chance it happens soon and is going to
be a large type of event, but what type of event I have no idea. There
is a chance a volcano is (in my opinion) that createing this tensions in
the crust.

This is just my speculation.
