Earthquakes Continue to Shake Iceland volcano, Still no Ashcloud

REYKJAVIK (Reuters) – An earthquake struck the region around Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano on Sunday while fissures in the area continued to spew out lava but still none of the ash that could hamper airline traffic.

The earthquake occurred at 0708 GMT and reached a magnitude of 5.4, making it one of the bigger quakes in the area in central Iceland since significant tremors began on Aug. 16, often producing thousands of quakes per day.

“There was also another quake, magnitude 4.6 at 0330 (GMT) in the night,” said Bergthora Thorbjarnardottir, geologist at the Icelandic Meteorological Office.
