Update Sun, 28 Feb 2021, 03:06
Deutsche Welle (DW) reported that according to geological experts from the US and Iceland, this 5.7 quake also sparked an increase in the volcanic activity of Mt. Keilir. Although no eruptions have been experienced yet, the IMO raised aviation warnings over the Krysuvik volcano system. This action by the IMO was most likely taken to avoid similar disruptions caused by the 2010 six-day eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in south Iceland. The eruption caused massive disruption to international air travel and affected as many as 10 million travelers

A strong earthquake shook the capital of Iceland earlier today, 24 Feb. 2021. The quake, with the epicenter located at about 29 km from Iceland's capital city of Reykjavik, was situated at the Reykjanes Volcanic Belt in the Reykjanes Peninsula. This is where the rift zone between the North American Plate and the Eurasian Plate occurs. According to the Iceland Met Office (IMO) there have been earthquake swarms since last week totaling to more than 500 imperceptible quakes. However, at 10:05 am local time today, a 5.7 earthquake hit and caused several felt aftershocks within a span of an hour.
Our monitoring service received multiple user reports describing moderate to strong shaking. A few of them reported at least 4 aftershocks within half an hour following the quake. IMO stated that residents from southwest Iceland can expect continuing earthquake occurrences for a while as “It can take time for the earth to release this much energy.” They also noted that this recent earthquake swarm had high intensities which they have never felt before.
No reports of damage have been received by the IMO. The mayors of Fagradalsfjall and Reykjavik also reported no significant damage or injuries.
Figure 1 above shows the map of recorded quakes during a 48-hour period. Figure 2 shows in detail the number of occurrences, time, and their magnitudes. On the morning of Wednesday, 24 Feb. 2021, we can see a spike in magnitude pertaining to this 5.7 quake. Following that are swarms of quakes with magnitude higher than 3.0.
A similar spike in magnitude occurred in October 2020 at almost the same area. It was a magnitude 5.6 quake with more than a hundred aftershocks recorded. Some of these shocks have been felt by nearby towns. No damages were reported then. This past quake was most probably related to volcanic activities in the Reykjanes Peninsula.
