There is an earthquake swarm happening about 93 km south of my location

that is ML4.0 up to ML5.5, but I doubt it is going to get bigger then
mag 5.5. I expect this earthquake to happen in next two days at least,

Also in general earthquake news from Iceland it appears that number of
earthquakes are on the rise, there appears to be high tension in the
crust in Iceland. Earthquake recording might get intresting at any time
