Iceland - 800 earthquakes in one day

Activity has now slowed

1 Mar 11 - This website reports 800 earthquakes in one day on Iceland's Reykjanes Peninsula, while another reports 400 earthquakes in one day.

With all of this seismic activity, they worry that the Krísuvík volcanic system (also spelled Krysuvik) could soon erupt.

It does sound worrisome at first, but when I look at the Iceland Met Office website, I see that activity has slowed dramatically.

I think I'll wait a bit before I go into panic mode. Besides, I don't know what would be considered normal for that part of Iceland.

Thanks to Laurel and Wanda for these links.
 

Krísuvík volcanic system

"Several eruptions have taken place since the settlement of Iceland, including the eruption of a large lava flow from the Ogmundargigar crater row around the 12th century," says the Smithsonian website. "The latest eruption at Krísuvík took place during the 14th century." (In the year 1188, according to John Search's Volcano Live website.)
