Iceland’s brewing volcano eruption could impact trans-Atlantic travel

Iceland’s brewing volcanic eruption could affect large parts of the globe. Thousands of residents in the fishing town of Grindavik were evacuated ahead of what could be a massive eruption threatening the area. The country is currently in a “hot spot” where magma often breaks through the earth’s crust which can result in huge eruptions. In 2010, ash spewed into the atmosphere by an Icelandic volcano brought trans-Atlantic air travel to a virtual standstill for weeks. The nation’s government is also highly concerned over a geothermal plant near the volcano which provides energy to Iceland’s main international airport.
