Inside the volcanic ash cloud: 35 large photos

April 19, 2010

Have you ever seen a volcanic ash cloud so close as those photographers did? I think you saw nothing, and even those photographers didn't comparing to those inhabitants who live in that area for centuries. The Icelanders saw much more disastrous eruptions, and they live on a volcano itself, you may say. But hey, if you coulnd't come and see it in your own eyes (even not talking about living there), let's still be brave to have a virtual photo-tour over Eyjafjalla, thanks to the reporters.

Horses in ash, wasted vegetation, and sheep lost in an ash cloud. All is there. See 35 photos at Boston.com.

Time to go home. Thousands of hostages of the Icelandic volcano has taken their flights

Korrespondent.net - 22/04/2010 13:02 GMT

PHOTO REPORT. This Wednesday, April 21st, the majority of European countries allowed and resumed flights that were temporarily stopped because of the danger of the volcanic ash cloud that had covered the Old World last week. Finally, thousands of passengers that had been nature's hostages for a week could take their way home. According to flight officials, on April 21st almost 3/4 of usual passenger traffic was served. It is expected that all air flights will have been on schedule till Thursday. The eruption of the Eyjafjalla has lead to the unprecedented air transportation collapse that is considered to be the most considerable since the WWII. Almost 6 million people were involved and suffered from the collapse to some extent. Losses of the air carriers are estimated to be around USD 2 billions.
