Bigger quake possibly on its way

19 Feb 2018 "We think it's likely that the seismis activity will die down and that this morning's quake was the largest, but there could be a larger one or one of a similar size that will arrive. We can't rule that out," says Hildur María Friðriksdóttir at the Iceland Met Office asked about this mornings earthquake just off Grímsey and the ensuing uncertainty level raised by the Civil Protection in Iceland.
