There was a volcano eruption near by the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier early Wednesday April 14, 2010 near Reykjavik in Iceland.

Please click  here for the updated list of airport and airspace status as of 2100 GMT Tuesday.

The eruption caused a flood around the area from the melted glacier.

The ash had flown to Europe airspace.

Aeroplane cannot fly because of the volcanic ash in the air.

The ash can cause problems to the plane engines.

About 17,000 flight were cancelled.

People cannot fly home like my father’s friend, Mr. Steve McEwan.

He cannot go back to the United Kingdom from Kuala Lumpur.

His flight was cancelled this morning.

Heathrow airport in London, Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, Schipholin airport in Amsterdam and many more airports in Europe are closed.

This is a disaster to everybody especially in Europe.
