There She Blows!

Just a quick update on the latest from the volcano in Iceland.

All Flights in and out of Ireland have been suspended for today. Northern Ireland and Scottish airspace is supposed to be reopened at 1:00 PM. This is an ongoing problem that goes back over two and half weeks to the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland. After suspending all flights in and out of the UK and Ireland for a week the volcanic activity died down. Experts believe the eruption could continue for months, but they are hoping the worst is over for this volcano. Experts  believe that there is more trouble ahead for other Icelandic volcanoes.

Katla, the bigger sister volcano of  Eyjafjallajökull, is showing some signs of trouble ahead. If Eyjafjallajökull was a terrible for the EU, Katla would be a catastrophe. The fact that it is five times bigger and it has a history of erupting after Eyjafjallajökull. I will continue to update with the latest information. Fly safe!

  1. I hope the larger volcano holds off for a while so I can make it back to the states in June! Keep us updated!

    • Ya, it is going to be very ‘interesting’ to see how everyone would respond if that big one did erupt. Hopefully you will be back before it happens.

  2. I would be worried if I was you, trying to get home, it may have all blown over by then hopefully but if not your stuck in sunny Sunderland great for you…Sunderland is no Calafornia!

    • Well it is a little bit worrying, but Sunderland isn’t to bad. Might not be California, but there is a lot here that southern California doesn’t have.
