More than 40,000 earthquakes have been felt in the Iceland region, Grandock, in one month.
It has created panic among the citizens and scientists are naming it an exceptional geological event.
The Grandock area is located in the southern part of the volcanic hotspot. More than 40,000 tremors have been felt since February 24.
The location of Iceland makes it prone to earthquakes as it lies between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, these plates move slowly in opposite directions at a speed of 2 cm per year.
However, a large molten rock magma that has slipped one kilometer below the region and is pushing to reach the surface, has caused the earthquakes.
According to a warning issued by Icelandic authorities, volcanic eruption in the peninsula is expected but it won’t affect international air travel or cause much damage to nearby areas.
Experts expect that lava from the volcano will erupt from 20 to 100 meters into the air.
