Hi all

This is my first offical volcano update notice on a possible eruption in
Iceland. It appears that the volcano system Kverkfj=F6ll is on the move,
but there has been a series of small earthquakes in the Kverkfj=F6ll
fissure swarm. There have been many small earthquakes recorded, most of
them happen at the depth of ~20 km, but the depth is down to 1 km. But
since the swarm started six months ago. Icelandic Met office has recored
about ~2000 earthquakes at the location, but the location is called
"Upptyppinga", but that are a mountin far as I can tell. IMO has
incresed it's survilance of the area.

I will send out a new upate notice on the activie soon as I know more.

Here are information on the volcano.

I have recored few earthquakes from that area, but the strongest onces
did go up to ~2.7M. But most of the earthquakes are mag -1.0 to 2.7 at
20 to 1 km depth.

This notice is based on a news I did see on a Icelandic news web. I am
going to collect more info tomorrow (Monday).
