Grimsvotn volcano, one of the most active volcanoes in Iceland, began eruption recently, which is the severest eruption since 1873. Lots of gas and dust are thrown into the air at altitude 12 miles (19.31 kilometers); volcanic ash has landed 400 km away to the capital Reykjavik. Iceland’s main international airport is closed and the towns and villages around the volcano are blanketed with volcanic ash. The range of 220 km radius of the volcano has been put into No-fly zone. According to experts, massive dust of Grimsvotn’s eruption may arrive in northern Scotland on the 24th, in Britain, France and Spain on 26th.
