Magnitude 4.5 earthquake strikes near Reykjavik, Reykjavíkurborg, Capital Region, Iceland

A few days ago it was announced that the volcanic eruption had stopped in Reykjavik, Iceland. And it experienced two earthquakes on Wednesday morning, so new natural disasters were an unpleasant surprise.

The first volcano had a magnitude of 4.1 and within 10 minutes there was an even stronger earthquake of magnitude 4.9. The authorities did not record serious earthquakes, but the epicenter of the disaster was not far from the lava eruption, which ended only a couple of days ago. According to meteorological data, there were about 1400 more microquakes after that this week. Very soon, the inhabitants of Iceland expect to receive a new warning about a volcanic eruption, since such seismic activity in 90% of cases is just such a harbinger.

The authorities are also concerned about so many disasters that have occurred over the past year and are taking all necessary measures to inform people and prevent catastrophic consequences!
