Tue, 20th Oct 2020 15:47

COPENHAGEN, Oct 20 (Reuters) - A large earthquake shook
south-western Iceland on Tuesday, the Icelandic Meteorological
Office said on its website.

The earthquake occurred at 1:43 p.m. local time (1343 GMT)
with first measurements putting it at magnitude 5.5, the office
said, adding that several aftershocks had been detected.

An initial measurement by the German Research Center for
Geosciences, GEOFON, said the quake that hit the Atlantic island
was of magnitude 5.7, but that number was later revised to
5.5.
