Volcanic Ash falls on Iceland

Wendy . Blog Published 22 April 2010

A volcano erupted in Iceland and the ash cloud headed east. Chaos in the airports as European flights were canceled. Planes were grounded, leaving passengers stranded both here and abroad. Some of our near and dear had to find alternative means of transportation: a ferry out of Liverpool, a bus with 30 kids returning from a now-prolonged tour of Wales... And the stories started to circulate. We worried about Europe and flights and friends, but what about the Icelanders and their livestock. How did they handle the eruption and falling ash?

Could this be similar to what happened to the dinosaurs?
