Less than an hour ago there was another quake in GREECE this time a shallow quake,
about 11 miles.

Swarms of Earthquakes in Iceland

Iceland Volcano and Earthquake blog

http://www.jonfr.com/volcano/?p=291

At least Two Current ongoing earthquake swarms in Iceland

Posted on December 5, 2010 by Jón Frímann

At the current time there are two main earthquake swarms taking place in Iceland. The first one is at Krísuvík volcano and has been going on since early this week. Currently there is nothing to suggest that it going to end any time soon. This earthquake swarm however sometimes stops for several hours and up to one to two days at the longest. Most of the earthquakes taking place are less then mag 2.5 in size. It is not clear why this earthquakes are taking place. This might be tectonic process or something to do with the magma intrusion that is taking place in Krísuvík volcano.

The second earthquake swarm is taking place at Herðubreiðartögl with earthquake taking place at Herðubreið at it’s north limits. …………….

Jim thanks for the data!
I just verified indeed they are ongoing...

Is Germany’s super-volcano awakening? We think so…
Posted on February 15, 2011 by The Extinction Protocol
February 15, 2011 – KOBLENZ, Germany- The Extinction Protocol - The scene of Germany’s famous Laacher See lake looks picturesque and serene but underneath the calm surface of the waters lies a potential killer that could devastate a good portion of Europe. The last time the Laacher See super-volcano erupted 12,000 years ago, it deposited ash across much of Europe. On July 30, 2010, an earthquake struck near the region and that likely signaled a potential awakening of the giant sleeping caldera. That Laacher See is a potentially active volcano has been proven by seismic activities and heavy thermal anomalies under the lake. Carbon dioxide gas from magma still bubbles up at the southeastern shore, and scientists believe that a new eruption could happen at any time. Today the region near Koblenz was shaken by a swarm of 7 earthquakes beginning with a 4.5 magnitude quake which erupted at a depth of 6 km. Across the planet, the giant dormant volcanoes, one by one, are being stirred from their long and ancient slumber. Earth is on the precipice of major geological change. See pages 134-135 in my book for the full Laacher See super-volcano story.

    * 4.5 quake 6 km – Germany
    * 3.2 quake 11 km – Germany
    * 2.4 quake 12 km – Germany
    * 3.7 quake 20 km – Germany
    * 2.1 quake 20 km – Germany
    * 3.4 quake 12 km – Germany
    * 2.0 quake 10 km – Germany

Fresh activity near a dormant 'super volcano' in Germany has left experts worried about a possible eruption. Britain's Daily Mail wrote the eruption from the 'monster' underneath Laacher See lake near Bonn, could eject billions of tons of magma which in turn could cause widespead devastation in Europe and even 'short-term global cooling'. The mountain last erupted 12,900 years ago. Volcanologists have estimated the mountain's size to be similar to that of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines - responsible for the biggest ejection of the 20th century. Pinatubo threw up '10 billion tons of magma, 20 billion tons of sulphur dioxide 16 cubic kilometres of ash and caused a 0.5C drop in global temperatures'. Experts near the Laacher See site have detected carbon dioxide bubbles on the lake's surface and believe the mountain in Germany could be active again.

7 Seismic Spots in Bulgaria Can Cause Earthquakes beyond 6.5
Environment | May 22, 2012, Tuesday
|

A total of seven seismic locations in Bulgaria have the potential to cause earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.5 or greater, according to scientists.
 
The earthquake that Bulgaria experienced at 2:58 am on Tuesday had a magnitude of 5.8-5.9 on the Richter Scale, the estimates of the Geophysics Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences have shown.
 
Four of the seismic spots in Bulgaria actually have the capacity of causing earthquakes with a magnitude of 7 and beyond:
 
The Krupnik-Kresna Gorge in Southwestern Bulgaria where an earthquake of 7-8 magnitude was estimated to have taken place in 1904; it is one of the spots with the highest seismic activity in Europe, and threatens the southwestern cities and towns Blagoevgrad, Sandanski, Petrich, and Kresna.
 
Shabla in Northeastern Bulgaria, on the Black Sea – the last major earthquake there took place in 1901, and had an estimated magnitude of 7-7.5 on the Richter Scale; it has the potential to affect Varna, Dobrich, Silistra, Balchik, Kavarna, Shabla.
 
Gorna Oryahovitsa in central Northern Bulgaria – the last major earthquake there was in 1913; it had an estimated magnitude of 7 on the Richter Scale, with the city of Veliko Tarnovo and the town of Gorna Oryahovitsa being under threat.
 
The region between Plovdiv and Chirpan – the last major earthquake there was in 1928; its magnitude was estimated at 7 on the Richter Scale; it has the potential to affect the Plovdiv and Stara Zagora regions.
 
The other seismic spots in Bulgaria have the potential to cause earthquakes of between 6.5 and 7 on the Richter Scale – namely the Sofia region, the region around the town of Provadia in the Northeast, and the region around the southeastern city of Yambol.
