The latest earth changes and fireball reportshas seen a large seismic swarm of more than 250 earthquakes rattling Herdubreid volcano in Iceland. According to sources, A Magnitude 3.3 earthquake struck under Mount Herdubreid this morning. This particular area has a rich history of active volcanoes and the last major eruption reported from this region was Bardabunga fissures, lasting about six months and leaving a new lava field known as Holuhraun as a result.

The swarm began roughly around midnight producing over 250 tremors and is continuing to take place in the area around Mount Herdubreid.

But the biggest quake – measuring 3.3 on the Richter scale – hit approximately 5 km under of the mountain.
