However, the earthquakes remained weak, with a magnitude of less than 3.0 on the Richter scale.
 
Fears of volcanic eruption persist on the Reykjanes peninsula, southwest of the capital Reykjavik. Authorities have evacuated the nearby town of Grindavík, which has a population of around 3,700, and have also closed the Blue Lagoon geothermal pool, the country's most famous tourist attraction.
 
Earthquakes and landslides caused by magma intrusion have already damaged roads and buildings in and around Grindavik.
