A seismic swarm started 20km SSW of the Greek Santorini volcano on Jan 13. While there is currently no indication that the earthquakes are volcanic in origin, the situation merits close monitoring.
The last eruption of this volcano took place in 1950 (VEI 2). A major catastrophic eruption (VEI 7) took place around 1613 — the so-called “Minoan eruption” — which was one of the largest plinian eruptions during the past 10,000 years.
According to data provided by the Hellenic Unified Seismic Network (H.U.S.N.), the swarm started at 02:50 UTC, January 13 with M2.5 earthquake at a depth of 13 km (8 miles).
This quake was followed by another M2.5 five minutes later and another 15 earthquakes by 15:44 UTC. Magnitudes ranged from 2.1 to 3.9 and depths from 8 to 17 km (5 – 10.5 miles).

Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
