I thought I would attach a couple video of the most recent volcanic eruption that began two days ago. Yes, there has been another one, very close to the first one. The most recent eruption was considerably larger and took place under the glacier producing major flooding from the melting ice. Most notable is the ash cloud that has extended to the British Isles and Northern Europe putting a stop for now to all commercial flights in the area that it covers. Yes folks, I mean all the flights in the UK and mainland Northern Europe. The irony is that because the volcano is to the east of Reykjavik and the international airport in Keflavik, and the wind has pushed the ash cloud to the east and south, it is still possible to fly out from Iceland to destinations not in the affected area. Here are some videos we thought you might enjoy.

And for those of you who might not understand the irony of an Icelandic volcano shutting down the airspace in the UK you might want to read this here.
