A tremor of magnitude 3.5 hit Mýrdalsjökull glacier just before 9 am today, mbl.is reports. A few aftershocks have registered since. The area is closely monitored around the clock by the Icelandic Met Office.

Close to 600 tremors were registered by the SIL monitoring network of the Icelandic Met Office last week.

A series of quakes began in Mýrdalsjökull glacier on August 29, the strongest of which measured 4.5 in the northern part of the caldera of Katla volcano. Those were the largest quakes in Katla since 1977.
