Flood from Eyjafjallajokull
Meltwater, ash and mud flowing from Gigjökull glacier.

Ongoing eruption


The plume from the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull volcano is still ongoing, reaching hights of 4 to 5 kilometers, occasionally reaching higher altitudes.

The plume drifts with north-westerly winds reaching Europe. It has been detected over Norway, Sweden, northwestern Russia, northern Poland, northern Germany, northern France and southern UK .

There is no indication that the ash from the volcano is decreasing and it is predicted that high-level winds will stay north-westerly today.
