Earthquakes in California, Earthquakes and Volcanoes in Iceland

While the Bay are of California suffered a "rolling" 6.3 magnitude earthquake overnight, Iceland felt multiple earthquakes over 5.0.  The latter are among more than 1000 other earthquakes in Iceland this month, suggesting a possible eruption of the Bardarbunga volcano.  Yesterday Iceland issued an aviation red alert warning that an ash-emitting eruption may be imminent.
