I read an article on USA today about the volcano in Iceland erupting and cancelling flights throughout Europe. It has stopped air travel in Europe for almost a week keeping the transport of food and equipment to other places. An eruption like this happened in 1821 and lasted for two years. It has been said that this eruption is almost as powerful as that one was. It covered the sky and killed thousands of animals used for live stock and caused a famine. They are worried it will have the same affect now stop air travel for at least a few weeks. I think this will not be good for Europe's economy.
