According to the Icelandic Meteorological Office, around 17,000 earthquakes happened in the southwestern area of Reykjanes three weeks ago. On the morning of February 24, the largest quake, measuring 5.6 on the Richter scale, struck. Residents of Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital city, and the municipalities surrounding it, which house two-thirds of the country’s population, are still in shock. On February 27 and March 1, two larger earthquakes with magnitudes of over 5.0 struck. Although Iceland’s Road and Coastal Administration has reported minor cracks in local streets and rockfalls on steep slopes near the swarm’s epicenter, the quakes have caused little damage so far.
