The Met Office says in a statement that the pulse of volcanic instability is still being recorded on most seismometers around Keilir mountain on the Reykjanes peninsula.

The pulse was first recorded at around 14.30 today and is located south of Keilir at Litli Hrútur. It is still clearly being picked up by nearby earthquake monitors, but its intensity has decreased slightly since 17.00. There is still a lot of activity in the area.

Around 1,700 earthquakes have been recorded since midnight; the largest was Magnitude 4.1 at 02.12 this morning. Most quakes later today have been much smaller, though a M 3.8 was recorded, and widely felt by people, at 20.17.

Do you have any questions about the earthquakes or volcanic activity?
