Greater than 20,000 earthquakes have shaken southern Iceland this week, rattling the capital metropolis of Reykjavik and preserving geologists on their toes as all indicators level to a pending volcanic eruption, the Icelandic Meteorological Workplace (IMO) reported on Thursday (March 4).

This week’s marathon of quakes continues a swarm of seismic exercise that started on Feb. 24, when a 5.7-magnitude earthquake struck close to Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula — about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from the capital metropolis.
