Threat of New, Larger Icelandic Eruption From Katla Volcano

So you think it’s business as usual and you can breath easier and relax because Britain and the rest of the world has resumed its normal flight schedules that came to a halt because of the ash cloud over Britain from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull eruption?

Not so. It’s not over. The most recent news from watchful scientists is that the threat of a new and even larger Iceland eruption is pending from Iceland's Katla Volcano, as scientists are now saying they fear tremors at the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano could trigger an even more dangerous eruption at the nearby Katla Volcano — creating a worst-case scenario for the airline industry and travelers around the globe.

A Katla eruption would be 10 times stronger and shoot higher and larger plumes of ash into the air than its smaller neighbor, which has already brought European air travel to a standstill for five days and promises severe travel delays for days more. Read about it here
