Flights in Europe are delayed due to the cloud of volcanic ash

Volcanic eruption in Iceland has paralized Europe

In brief: It is in high layers of atmosphere and its particles of ash are able to disrupt aircraft engines.

Cloud of volcanic ash formed due to the eruption in Iceland is covering European countries. It breaks the air communications in Europe. Great Britain, Ireland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Norway and Netherlands have closed all airports. Also some flights to Europe are delayed from Russia, Germany and Baltic countries.

This cloud is not dangerous for people. It is in high layers of atmosphere and its particles of ash are able to disrupt aircraft engines. The cloud is going slowly and in close time can reach the air territories of Baltic countries and North of Poland.

The Volcano Eyjafjallajökull had been sleeping for almost 200 years. Its first eruption this year was on March, 20, then it repeated on April, 14.
