South Iceland Earthquake 's earthquake in south Iceland , which is 6.0 points on the Richter or more, caused by the movement of the exchange format, a narrow belt that runs from Ölfus east to the Vatnajökull . With the movement distorted crust and tension loads up. Another wave emitted by this accumulated tension released in an earthquake. Last South Iceland Earthquake happened on 29 May, 2008 and was 6.2 points before earthquakes had ridden over on 17th and 21st June in 2000 measured 6.5 and 6.6 on the Richter . In 1912 struck South Iceland earthquake was 7.0 on the Richter scale, and in 1896 there were 5 earthquakes, 6.5 to 6.9 points in the region of Landssveit West Ölfus . Jarðskjálftaár according to the South. Logs: 1013 - 1164 - 1182 - 1211 - 1294 - 1308 - 1311 - 1339 - 1370 - 1389 - 1391 - 1546 - 1581 - 1613 - 1618 - 1624 - 1630 - 1633 - 1657 - 1658 - 1663 - 1671 - 1706 - 1732 - 1734 - 1749 - 1752 - 1754 - 1784 - 1789 - 1808 - 1828 - 1829 - 1896 - 1912 - 2000 - 2008
Swarm of Earthquakes is now underway in Krýsuvík and have over fifty earthquakes recorded in the last two days, according skjálftavef service. Earth calf Tarn are all small - the largest just under two points, and having most of the source in a small area southwest of Lake climbed three to five kilometers. Cycle as these have been prominent in the fall and winter, which began two years ago. They followed an unusually high landris, but the country rose by three centimeters in Krýsuvík, and the earth believed the reason that informed the civil upheavals. Land rose went back last winter and the first half of last year but then began again in fyrravor. They decided to patrol the area better and to this end, two new GPS-meters occurred. Seismic wave of quests in the fall of scientists came as no surprise as they had previously let know civil defense can anticipate shifts in the region. Scientists are not sure what's going on there, but most lean to the land rise can be explained by increased pressure in the geothermal system, possibly associated with magma movement.
Earthquake occurred in Reykjavík at. 9 in the morning. According to the IMO was the size of the quake on the fourth Quake had their origin in Kleifarvatn, but about 200 earthquakes have been recorded there since midnight.

"Men have a reservation in the first hours after such an event," says Gunnar. He encourages people to show relax. The IMO estimates that the largest quake was 4 points, but it is slightly more than shown on the automatic seismic her page. Thus the largest earthquake at 9:06 this morning said 3.7 points and Gunnar says that automatic tracking systems tend to underestimate the larger earthquakes. More accurate measurement of service indicate that the quake was 0.3 points higher or 4 points.
From Krýsuvík area. "We can really not see, I went and checked the meters, and it did not see anything this was happening," says Sigþrúður Ármannsdóttir, Geographer of the IMO, when asked whether any probability of an eruption on Krýsuvík region, but many earthquakes have been recorded since this morning saw the biggest four on richter. She says that many volcanoes are in the area where the last eruption for hundreds of years. "It was the eruption period there from 800 to 1300, so it's not like Hekla or so,"

What are those graphs saying?!?! I hope that Puterman can explain those better.
That area is shaking a lot. For an amateur like me, this map below is really, really alarming!
