Recent violent seismic activity in the vicinity of Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano has raised concerns that a violent eruption is in prospect with implications for air travellers to and from Europe.
Air passengers could be set to face yet more delays from Sunday as the Icelandic ash cloud continues to cause problems. The Department of Transport say some flights could be grounded for up to three days with the South East being worst affected.
History shows that when Eyjafjallajokull erupts - like now and previously in 1821- what follows in an eruption of its bigger sister, known as Katla. In all likelihood, this will happen this year or in the beginning of 2011.
