Unusual land uplift in Reykjanes peninsula

The National Commissioner of the Icelandic Police, in association with the District Commissioner in Sudurnes in Iceland, has declared an uncertainty phase due to observed unusual land uplift located in the south-west part of the Reykjanes peninsula. The Icelandic Meteorological Office has furthermore changed the aviation colour code to yellow.

The suspected cause of the uplift is an inflow of magma in the crust. At the same time a swarm of earthquakes in the region has taken place, but such earthquake swarms are not uncommon in the region.

The Civil Protection Authorities and stakeholders are closely coordinating and monitoring the situation but at this stage the situation does not yet warrant the activation of the National Crisis and Coordination Centre.
Community meeting will be held in the municipality of Grindavík tomorrow, Monday January 27th at 16:00 hrs local time at the local sports hall. At the meeting the civil protection authorities and scientists will give an update of the situation.

Uncertainty phase is characterized by an indication of event that could pose a health- or security threat to people, communities or the environment.
