The volcanic ash cloud Saturday moved across northern and north-western Romania with diminished concentration, said Gabriela Bancila, meteorologist on duty of the National Meteorology Administration (ANM).

The ash cloud is between 7,000 and 11,000 meters high from the earth and it moves much more slowly to the south.

Prime Minister Emil Boc assures there is no risk for Romania that the volcanic ash cloud ejected by Iceland's volcano Eyjafjallajokull settles on ground. No special recommendation to the population is required, he said late Friday at the end of talks with the experts of the convened Committee for emergencies.

In his turn, ANM manager Ion Sandu said late Friday that there was no risk for the volcanic ash cloud to reach the ground.

The Transport Ministry till now closed up to 11 airports in western, northwestern, northeastern and central Romania. In the capital city of Bucharest, as many as 131 flights have been canceled Saturday in the two international airports, after 42 flights canceled on Friday.
