    The cloud of volcanic ash hanging over Europe may be playing havoc with travel plans on the continent, but in Iceland, where the volcano is erupting, its effects have been even more dramatic.

    Rural communities have been cut off by rising flood water caused by glacial ice melting and near the site of the eruption, brisk winds are blowing a corrosive mixture of grit and ash across the country. Residents are reporting a second winter descending on the area.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Southern Iceland on the impact the eruption is having on those who live in its shadow.
