Since late October, more than 20,000 earthquakes have occurred in Iceland with 2,000 just over this past weekend.

Evacuations have already started with a successful evacuation of 3,700 residents of a nearby fishing town.

On Friday, an underground magma formation was found that officials say, (quote) "can be an indication that magma is moving closer to the surface, new models will be run as soon as new data comes in to update the model," (un-quote).

As of right now, it is impossible to determine if or when an eruption may occur. But News Central will keep you up to date as more information surfaces.
