Iceland has restricted travel around a cluster of volcanos, following an eruption near the Dyngjujokull glacier just after midnight.
A red alert warning issued by the Icelandic Met Office – the highest possible – indicates that “an eruption is imminent or in progress, and that a significant emission of ash into the atmosphere is likely”.
And just incase you’re bored, having been off school for so long, here is a great video to watch. (You Tube access needed). Don’t worry – our flights will be fine, it will have settled down by then….and if by very small chance they are not, we are insured against cancelled flights (and we shall go again another time!).
