It was, perhaps because some sort of 'refill' has been achieved? (less magma movement). Godabunga recorded a significant tremor (blue line) around the same time as the Eq activity:

It was an AP from the Nintendo news headlines. Let me see if I can nail the source and get back to you.
Okay not immediate, Dr. Eriansson (I think that's right) a local scientist from the University of Iceland and another from the Iceland MetO, (sorry, I did not remember the name). Both suggest the latest patterns point to Katla and Helka(?) seem to demonstrate surface activity suggesting the emergence of a magmatic event in the near future. As to strength, it likely can only be gauged by the length and intensity of the tremmor record.

There is a similar story on the mirror dot com web site, but nothing new in either of the articles. They both talk about inceased activity and earthquake swarms, (which we have seen all summer) and the posibility that it might be leading up to something, (which we already know) but nothing new today that suggests an immediate eruption; in fact the eqs have decreased in the last 48 hours.

As far as I can see, it all seems to be based on an AP release (as David indicated), which obviously went out today - it's interesting to note which papers mark it as AP and which give it a reporter's name.
Anyway, I'd guess this is all triggered by the activity reported on the 5th, and the fact that the 1918 eruption was on the 12th October, causing someone to decide that it's worth bunging on the wires.

Anyway, 3.1 Mag (x2) plus a good few others and at shallow depth 1km according to source:

Off-topic I see an eruption has taken place in Chile of the Hudson volcano, Chilean authorities currently have activity listed as a red risk (albeit at the first of four red stages). This is an especially dangerous volcano with a history of producing VEI 5/6 eruptions as recent as 1991.

There has to be a large intrusion of Magma coming up from that depth.
