A strong burst of nearly 4000 earthquakes has caused fear of another volcano eruption in Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland, as the month of August begins.

A strong swarm of up to 4,000 earthquakes have been detected in Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland, potentially coming from magma movement below the earth, with scientists concerned on the possibility of another volcanic eruption, as reported by Severe Weather.

Beginning on Saturday July 30, the tremors culminated in a 5.4 magnitude earthquake on Sunday, near Grindavik, a rough 50 kilometres away Fromm the capital of Reykjavik.

Thousands of tremors also occurred during the early hours of Monday, August 1, with a recorded magnitude of more than 4.0.

Twitter has since flooded with reports and footage of the incidents:

“There was a M5.4 earthquake at the site of last year’s volcanic eruption in Iceland. Here’s the footage of when it hit.”

“Remember, while Fagradalsfjall may not be “active” right now, she’s far from “inactive”. The Reykjanes peninsula is alive.”

“Triggered #earthquake M5.4 on Reykjanes Peninsula. Shaking widely felt. New dyke intrusion in #Fagradalsfjall triggering large events in neighbouring volcanic systems.”

“A search in the USGS database revealed that there has been a seismic increase on the Reykjanes Peninsula since October 2020. Search parameters for M 5+ since January 2010 showed 7 events (peaking M 5.6) none of which occurred before October 2020.”
