Moments ago the Icelandic Met Office (IMO) reported a 4.2-magnitude earthquake struck 1.3 km ENE of Krýsuvík, Iceland at a shallow depth of 3.7km

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might still be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.

Weak shaking was felt in Vogar (pop. 1000) located 20 km from the epicenter, Hafnarfjordur (pop. 26,800) 20 km away, Grindavik (pop. 2,900) 20 km away, Garðabaer (pop. 11,400) 23 km away, Alftanes (pop. 2,400) 23 km away, Kopavogur (pop. 31,700) 25 km away, Reykjavik (pop. 118,900) 28 km away, Seltjarnarnes (pop. 4,300) 29 km away, Mosfellsbaer (pop. 8,700) 35 km away, and Mosfellsbær (pop. 8,700) 35 km away.
