posted in: Volcano | 0

A magnitude 3.1 earthquake struck Katla volcano at 04:40 this morning, followed by a magnitude 3.7 earthquake only one minute later, at 04:41.

According to Icelandic Met Office (IMO) a few smaller aftershocks followed thereafter.

In just the last 24 hours, IMO has recorded around 200 earthquakes in Katla.

There seems to be an increased possibility, that Katla will form a focal point in ICE2017 planning.

Interesting times ahead………
