Bardarbunga volcano update: Tremor drops, activity might be subsiding

It is far from clear what is currently happening at the eruption. Tremor (indicator of magma moving) stopped yesterday evening around 21:30 local time and has not reappeared according to the Icelandic Met Office. This could indicate that the eruption is subsiding although webcam imagery suggested it continued with no apparent big change during the night.
Earthquakes around Bárdarbunga today so far (IMO)
Authorities are on alert for a possible subglacial eruption.
Earthquakes both under the caldera of Bárdarbunga central volcano, around Askja volcano and under the intrusion below the edge of the ice continue at reduced intensity.
The biggest event of the night was magnitude 4.8 earthquake in northern Bárðarbunga.
The eruption is currently not visible from cameras because of fog. Around 4 o'clock visibility was better and it activity appeared to be the same as before.
