Eyjafjallajokull volcano, Iceland - John Seach

All flights in the UK have been grounded due to ash emission Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland. This is the first time that British airspace has been totally closed. The eruption has caused the cancellation of 17,000 flights. Travelers have been stranded in Australia, USA, and Europe as connecting flights to Europe have been affected. Clearing of the ash will depend upon the eruptions at Eyjafjallajokull volcano and wind direction. More of the glacier has begun to melt and there have been further evacuations. The damage to the main highway which circles Iceland is extensive. Will neighbouring Katla volcano erupt, as it has at the past two eruptions of Eyjafjallajokull?
