Iceland’s super-volcano threatens to erupt

Eruption of Katla volcano could disrupt air traffic across Europe with ash cloud similar to one seen in 2010.

Iceland Katla volcano

Volcanic eruptions in Iceland are capable of affecting air traffic across Europe, as the Eyjafjallajokull volcano showed by grounding flights for a week in 2010.

Now, recent tremors around the much larger Katla volcano indicate that it may be nearing eruption as well. Experts are concerned that such an event could bring global travel disruptions and flooding from melted glaciers.
