Iceland Volcano – Katla Situation Update

T-Minus three weeks until I leave for Iceland and all is quiet on the volcano front. Eyjafjallajokull is quietly steaming away in the background on the webcam (when visibility is good – lately it has been terrible) and Katla is eerily silent. Even the earthquakes have slowed of late with only minimal activity in the last week – I hope this is not the calm before the storm. This is the quietest Katla has been since I started monitoring it back in May.  The Modern Survival Blog has an interesting story today on earthquakes – in 2010 they are apparently up 133 percent across the globe – Mother Nature stretching her legs? I am continuing to monitor the status of both Eyjafjallajokull and Katla on a daily basis and will do so up until I leave later this month. The Icelandic Met Office has some great reports for anyone interested in daily updates.
