In Iceland as earthquakes dwindle into the hundreds experts are wary to say it’s over


Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

Important Takeaways:

  • Iceland Volcano Update: Eruption Map, Experts’ Views ‘Completely Changed’
  • In an update on Tuesday, the Icelandic Meteorological Office said that the Reykjanes Peninsula—where an eruption was thought likely after a burst of seismic activity from November 10—would be subject to increased monitoring and more experts drafted in to help.
  • On Wednesday, the Icelandic Met Office said the ground around Svartsengi “continues to inflate,” meaning “further dikes or an eruption remain possible.” While the area the previous dike formed is anticipated to be the most likely area of eruption, experts have not been able to discount the possibility that magma propagates elsewhere in the region.
  • Between 1,500 and 1,800 earthquakes a day were being recorded from November 10 for nearly two weeks, before dropping to the low hundreds. Between 200-300 earthquakes have been registered a day in the past two days, while the Icelandic Met Office said as of 6:15 a.m. ET on Wednesday there had so far been a hundred.
  • While the intense seismic activity around the vertical dike appears to have subsided for the time being, the continued flow of lava into the horizontal intrusion means another could form, or more magma flow into the dike, without warning.
