Iceland—or its capital area to be more precise—is currently being hit by large earthquakes several times a day. Scientists fear a volcanic eruption at Reykjanes, but there seems to be no sign of one just yet. Also, scientists are seriously worried that an earthquake of 6.5 in magnitude could take place, which might well inflict damage on nearby neighbourhoods. And animals are not too happy about the shakes; Pollý, for example, is quite stressed.
