Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.1 just reported 96 km southeast of Akureyri, Iceland
5.1 quake 27 Dec 6:05 am (GMT +0)
Iceland was shaken near Akureyri, Akureyrarkaupstaður, Northeast, by an earthquake of magnitude 5.1 only 12 minutes ago, the Icelandic Met Office (IMO) reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 5.2 km beneath the epicenter near Akureyri, Akureyrarkaupstaður, Northeast, Iceland, early morning on Tuesday, December 27th, 2022, at 6:05 am local time. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Stafn (pop. 25) located 88 km from the epicenter, Akureyri (pop. 17,700) 96 km away, and Reykjadalur (pop. 1000) 98 km away.

Based on its magnitude, the fault that was active during the quake ruptured along a surface of approx. 10 km2
(=4 sqare miles) as a first-order estimate. The length of the rupture zone thus was probably around 5 km (3 mi).
Aftershocks typically occur during the days and weeks following the quake at or near the same fault, at distances of up to approx. two times the length of the rupture zone.
The often broadly linear arrangement of aftershock epicenters encompasses the rupture zone of the main shock (check on the map
below to verify).
