Eyjafjallajokull's Eruption Cause Great Chaos

All flights in and out of the UK and several other European countries have been suspended as ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland moves south.

Almost 4000 flights have been cancelled due to the recent volcanic eruption in Iceland. When Eyjafjallajokull erupted it spewed out a 4.7km high cloud off volcanic ashes and debries from the explosion. Later on the glacier on top of Eyjafjallajokull melted and caused floods evacuated over 800 people. The ash cloud has since gone high into the air grounding more than 4000 flights and closing UK air space until At least 6:00am Friday morning. not only has UK air space been closed but Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark have all also been closed. At the moment scientists are saying that the eruption could go on for just a few hours up to days or even weeks the amount cant be confirmed since it is a act of Nature. For all you people that have had your flights cancelled remember it is for your own safety because if you may or may not remember during a Mount Saint Helens Eruption a plane was flying and it flew right into the ash cloud and came seconds away from crashing. When you fly into an ash cloud there is a very high risk of the ash getting caught into the engines and if this happens then the plane is going to loose momentum and fall so for your safety they don't want to take the risk of flying just in case the plane does get caught up in the ash cloud, and when you think about it what would you rather be a couple of hours/ days late for your holiday or a crash landing in the middle of the ocean somewhere?

Pope Benedict XVI says the Catholic Church needs to "do penance", an apparent reference to the child sexual abuse scandal.

Emergency teams have been pouring into western China's Qinghai province, a day after a deadly earthquake devastated the mountainous region.

If I may add what is it with all of the Natural disasters recently ever since new year there's been a hand full of Earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and now a volcanic eruption maybe the Tectonic plates are shifting A.K.A. Polar Shift. If you are not sure what the Polar Shift, it is where the plates make a huge movement therefore moving the polar ice caps from there position they reckon that happened with the most recent Chilli Earthquake.
