Hi all

The SIL network of the Icelandic met office has detected something
intresting, the automatic system shows a earthquake at 110km depth,
where the crust is only ~30 km thick. This might be a error, but my
station shows a event at that same time. If this earthquake gets
confirmed at depth of more then 30km there must be something intresting
be under the crust in my area.

I did check for gloabl earthquake and I didn't see any event big enugh
to create a false local earthquake, but that requires a mag 8.0+ less
then 7700 km away from Iceland to do that.

Any suggestion on what this is are welcomed.
