Volcano Activity in Iceland on January 28 2017 04:56 AM (UTC).
An earthquake of magnitude 4,3 took place in the Katla volcano in South Iceland yesterday. It originated in the middle of the caldera underneath Myrdalsjokull glacier. Scientists believe that the increased seismic activity over the last months indicates the Katla is more likely to erupt now than the years before. A group of scientists, members of the police, the Icelandic Met Office and the University of Iceland had a meeting yesterday to discuss this, along with Barðarbunga volcano, and the importance of increased surveillance. Katla is one of Iceland's largest and active volcanoes with over twenty eruptions documented since the year 930.
