Nothing mutch happening at the moment, but there´s been some incresed activity in Vatnajökull near Bárdabunga(been steadily incresing the last 4
weeks now) , also noticed Hekla has had 2-4 tremors this week wich have been real small though , about 1 on richter.
All in all this summer, the most activity that has been incresing is in Bárdabunga and Askja. Katla doesn´t seem to be rumbeling at all now most of
the shakes that have been there are the ones in Fimmvörðuháls that is the first eruption that happent this summer.
I was driving home last week when i noticed 2 huge steam vents reaching up to the sky, i was with my friend but i didn´t have a camera with me. I
decided to drive up near it. It was just outside of town maybe 20-25km, it was in a area that is being used to , lol mind is a little blank right now
,, so i´ll say harvest steam. When we came near it we noticed it was 6 vents, 4 that made one huge steam and 2 that made one smaller. Normally these
kinda steams just go 20 meters into the sky and dissolve but these vent so high that we saw them 20 km away and thought it was worth checking out.
Next day they had dissapeard and there was no news about it either on goverment sites or news media, yet this is not normal. Im thinking there might
have been incresed pressure in the region. This is the area north of the hengil region, in the middle of reykjarvik and hveragerði, hveragerði is
the area where most of the (steam harvesting) is being "farmed" hehe
Still waiting on getting my pictures from my vacation.....
