Iceland on the Map
The current spate of volcanic eruptions from under Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull glacier started Wednesday. Since then, thick clouds of black and brown ash have been spreading south and east to other parts of Europe. The ash cloud has now spread east to Russia and is heading south close to Greece. Winds will continue to blow in the same direction for at least two days and could go on until the middle of next week, spreading more ash throughout the European continent.
