Quake Swarm North End of Mid Atlantic Ridge – 2nd Swarm Forms!!

25 06 2016

[We call the Reykjanes Ridge up by Greenland the north end of the Mid Atlantic Ridge because it looks like part of the same zipper going up the middle of the Atlantic. – FC]

Many quakes in the same area now …

Plus – Two 4.7M quakes off to the east of the ridge near the Azores. Similar magnitude as the swarm.

We might update this post later.

You have to zoom way in with RSOE map to see them all. They are 2.1-2.9M and near a volcano.
