Shaken and shaken again, Icelanders say they are learning to live with the quakes, but scientists say the seisms are a harbinger of volcanic activity and expect an eruption but do not know when.

The day it happens, however, the warning will be only minutes, they say.

Roads are cracked, Reykjav√≠k is shaking. “It is stressful, said the prime minister.” There has not been this much activity this close to the capital, in more than 100 years, according to the BBC.
