For the past two weeks, the Icelandic town of Grindavik has experienced hundreds of small earthquakes, causing road cracks and raising concerns of a potential volcanic eruption. A significant 4.8 magnitude quake recently forced the closure of the Blue Lagoon geothermal resort. Scientists, including geology professor Pall Einarrson, are monitoring a 10 km long, spreading magma corridor located about 5 km underground, with origins in a 2,000-year-old crater network north of the town. Grindavik's residents were briefly evacuated but have since been allowed to return, following a state of emergency declaration due to the escalating seismic activity.
