Magnitude 6.8 Earthquake Strikes Off Of The Coast Of Iceland


A STRONG earthquake has hit by a Norwegian volcanic island called Jan Mayen in the Arctic Ocean, measuring 6.8 on the Richter Scale.

The quake took place 10km deep and 722km from Akureyri, Iceland. 

There is not yet known information of whether the quake has disrupted the island’s volcanic activity. 


The earthquake struck at 1:49am GMT and its epicenter was in a remote area of the ocean around 253 miles east of Ittoqqortoormitt in Greenland.

The force caused local waves to appear in the Greenland Sea.
However, the US Tsunami Warning System said it is not expected to cause a tsunami in more populated areas.
The island is mountainous, the largest mountain being the volcano Beerenberg in the northeast.
It is the world’s northernmost active volcano that is not underwater.

Beerenberg’s most recent eruptions took place in 1970 and 1985.
At 2277m high, it is the highest mountain in the Arctic Circle and completely dominates the north of the island.
Jan Mayen has felt six earthquakes in the past year.
The tip of the island overlaps with the so-called Jan Mayen Fracture Zone, a transform fault which displaces the Mid-Atlantic Ridge by about 150km.

There are no reports of damage or injuries after the earthquake, according to the police.
The only people on the island are military personnel from the Norwegian Armed Forces.
The meteorological station is located just a few kilometers away from the settlement Olonkinbyen, where all personnel lives.
During this time of year, there is no sunshine in Jan Mayen at all and there is an average daily temperature of -3 degrees Celsius.

As predicted by Planet X News on November 5th, 2018 

The massive coronal hole forming on the sun would be Earth-facing within days and as stated this would cause increased seismic activity worldwide and it sure did.  The picture below clearly shows an updated image from the Solar Dynamics Observatory Spacecraft that monitors the Sun's activity.

Below is an updated 48-hour loop from the Solar Dynamics Observatory showing this massive coronal hole opening.  The increased seismic activity will continue for at least the next 5 to 7 days as the heavily charged particles streaming from the sun penetrate the Earth's crust and make their way to the Core.
