New eruption?

Iceland is full of active volcano's.
First we had Eyafjallajökull and now there is Grímsvötn (On the Vatnajökull)
Last night the Icelandic weather institute measured serious activity around Grímsvötn. There were earthquakes, one measuring 2.9 on Richter (at 2:30h last night) with increased tremor (see graph)
The last eruption there was just six years ago in 2004. Here a vid of the mountain...
They're now flying over the area to see how the thing is developping.
When I get to know more...I'll write some more :)
