In Iceland, a seismic swarm marked the Bárðarbunga on 13 November; there will be two earthquakes of magnitude 3+ in the northeastern part of the volcanic field ... an earthquake of M 3.6 at a depth of 10 km at 19:01, followed two minutes later, by another of M 3, 3 to a depth of 3 km. They were followed by a dozen replicas.
