There was a pretty strong earthquake here in Iceland about 2 hours ago. No casualties have been reported, only some property damage and minor injuries. My house shook and I could hear the glasses and plates in the cupboards shaking, but my home and us are in one piece. The people in the south of the country, in towns called Hveragerði and Selfoss (and surrounding towns) are asked to stay outside just in case. The earth is still trembling over there. Pictures fell of the walls, stuff from shelves etc. But like I said, there have been no casualties reported.
I know Earthquakes can be pretty scary and dangerous, but I have to admit that some weird part of me enjoys them. I like feeling the power of the earth and the force that lives in it. Now I am wondering if a volcano is about to erupt also. That is not unlikely, and specialists are keeping close watch on the active volcano’s.
