A number of minor earthquakes in Iceland could be associated with the movement of magma

  Several small earthquakes were recorded sensors Krisuvik geothermal area in the south-western peninsula of Reykjanes Saturday. The strongest earthquake had a magnitude of 2.1, but most of them had a magnitude less than one. The series began at 4 pm and lasted for three hours. The epicenter was located just below the south end of the lake Kleyvarvatn. In 2010 and 2011 there was a constant rise Krisuvik area for a total of eight centimeters. This may be due to the pressure of the magma, or geothermal heat, which can lead to volcanic activity.Source:Iceland
