Iceland: Earthquake M 5.6

On the Icelandic Reykjanes Peninsula, the earthquake struck this afternoon at 13.43 UCT with a magnitude of 5.6, with the epicenter located 3.9 km west of Krýsuvík and only a few kilometers from Grindavik. The hypocenter was located at a depth of 3.3 km. The quake could be felt in large parts of southwest Iceland and shook the capital. For Iceland it was a strong quake. There were numerous aftershocks, although I would honestly say that the main quake triggered a seismic swarm. So far 219 quakes have been registered, 12 with magnitudes greater than 3.
