The immanent eruption of a volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsular, it is claimed, is part of a 1000 year cycle of volcanic activity on the island. Hundreds of earth tremors, and murmurs, have been recorded since October – and evacuation of at least one town has begun. A magma tunnel has opened up and lava appears to be rising towards the surface. On the other hand, magma might just be filling a void caused by a tectonic fracture. Therefore, it is not certain it will blow. Another interesting point is that the recent seismic activity has coincided with several burst of solar wind breaching the magnetosphere – in October and November.

Regions near historical earthquake epicentres are still seismically active, it seems. However, one could look at it another way – they could be foreshocks of a major upcoming earthquake in interior North America.
