Tremors in South Iceland

 An earthquake at a magnitude of 3.4 was felt in the town of Selfoss last night. Locals reported cupboards shaking and crockery breaking. An ongoing swarm of earthquakes has continued into the morning. 

The earthquake swarm started at around 4 pm last night and the second largest quake was measured at 2.9 on the Richter scale. 

According to the Iceland Met Office the earthquakes are occurring on a well-known fissure area.  The Met Office will be observing developments closely over the next few days. They do not rule out larger earthquakes occurring in the area but it's just as likely that the swarm will just subside.
