Iceland rocked by thousands of earthquake tremors as scientists warn volcano may erupt | The Extinction Protocol

Around 3,000 tremors have hit Iceland in the past three days, the country’s meteorological service (IMO) has said as officials warn that the Grimsvotn volcano is at risk of erupting. The tremors have been caused by three earthquakes – each one with a magnitude of more than five – that struck the northern coast over the weekend, according to the IMO. One of the quakes was felt in the capital Reykjavik, located about 265km (165 miles) away from the epicentre, off the coast of Siglufjordur – a small village of around 1,200 people.
