There have been 22 earthquakes of a magnitude greater than 3.0 since midnight last night, at the time of this writing, the largest being a 5.0 at 07:43 this morning near Fagradalsfjall. In fact, every 3+ earthquake recorded so far today has been near Fagradalsfjall.

As reported, Fagradalsfjall is currently considered to be the most likely location for a volcanic eruption, if it happens, based on the most recent measurements. As it stands now, there is a roughly 50% chance that an eruption will occur.

As such, numerous sources have set up live feeds of the location. Two such live feeds can be seen below. If you cannot view the embeds in this article, direct links are viewable here and here.
