Icelandic Volcano on alert following earthquakes -

Hi everyone,

A Forum member who knows I am travelling on Thursday has just alerted me to the news - will be following this closely and praying we don't get a repeat of the 2010 mayhem Ash Cloud

According to Sky News Iceland have just raised the aviation alert for its volcano from orange to red.

The civil aviation authority are saying there is no impact on Uk flights yet.

Hi

The volcano is now on red alert after minor eruptions under the glacier

Hope it doesn't cause the chaos we had back in 2010

Hi,

It looks like they've lowered the risk back to Orange again today.

Hi Em

I'm relieved for those waiting to set off on their holidays - I think my Hubby is quite enjoying being home alone so he will be disappointed If my trip isn't prolonged!

42 today

Since 2010 they have re-evaluated the risk of the volcanic dust on flights etc and even if things get worse with the volcano flights won't be impacted to anywhere near the same extent as last time

Hi Angela,

42 degrees...you lucky people, I'm sooo jealous!

Hope you've got a jumper with you for travelling home as its a lot cooler than that now back here in Surrey, especially in the evenings!

Enjoy the heat while you can!
