OMG: Earthquake in Reykjavik, Iceland

After trying to get some things done and staying away from Twitter this week a bit, I just logged on and got a first hand report from my Blogging friend Hjortur Smarason of Marketing Safari that Reykjavik just had a 6.7 Richter scale earthquake.

Twitter Over Capacity

I am almost certain Twitter is not over its capacity because of this earthquake. It is fluttering for some weeks now already.

I am experimenting away to get a decent screen shot from the conversation. Just to be able publish quickly I’ve copied and pasted this from Kwout:

Am I saved by the bell?

Maybe: The point is this: Hjortur asked me two weeks ago, if I would be interested to go on a Cruise in Iceland and blog about it. I had to decline because right now I am much too busy and also because my readership just from the Netherlands is a bit too small…..It just might not be interesting enough for his client. His relating post is this one: A Great Opportunity for Travel Bloggers

Constance who he is referring to is one of the two lady Bloggers of the Dutch Blog Vakantie Blogo who I introduced to him and who went in my place. Sorry Constance!

Update:

And here a first picture of what happens at such earthquake:

Update 2:

Constance reported already extensively about her trip in Dutch:

  1. IJsland
  2. IJsland
  3. Voordelig naar IJsland
  4. Cruise op IJsland>
  5. Boutique Hotel in Reykjavik I envy her for being able to review that
  6. Reis naar IJsland
  7. Cruise in IJsland
  8. Blue Lagoon

Well done Constance!

Update 3: 01.30 AM Local Time

Funny to see that I beat CNN by approx 4 hrs. Strange way of storing their stories here at CNN they quote me under From the Blogs.

Update 4
While in Iceland Constance even didn’t notice Iceland was hit by an earthquake, because she was at another part of the Island. She only heard about it from her husband when she phoned home….
