There is been lot of economic problems, and people here in Iceland are very angry at Uk, to put terrorist law and collapse everything here.
So people who belive in Heathenry, had a night where they asked they wights in iceland, who are on picture below, to attack the Britain and Netherlands, and show the true power of Iceland and people who live here.
UK extends air restrictions after Icelandic eruption Iceland's ash plume and a warning from Met Office scientist Derrick Ryall Flights to and from most UK airports are to stay suspended until at least 1900 BST because of ash from a volcano in Iceland, air traffic officials say. However some flights may now be allowed in Northern Ireland and to some airports in Scotland. The volcanic eruption has caused flight cancellations across Europe amid fears the ash could cause engine failures. Air traffic control service (Nats) said its next review would be at 0830 BST but the situation was "not improving".
The volcano's eruption is intensifying, and the wind direction is expected to continue bringing clouds of ash into UK and European airspace for some time to come - safety group Eurocontrol said the problem could persist for 48 hours.
In a statement issued at 0230 BST, Nats - the National Air Traffic Service - said "flights in Northern Ireland and the Western Isles of Scotland to and from Glasgow and Prestwick may be allowed in the period from 0100 (UK time) to 1300 (UK time) subject to individual co-ordination".
The only thing I have a problem with is that the media seems to be focusing entirely on the effects of ash upon aircraft, but they are saying very little about the effects of ash on people's health.
Volcanic ash (by itself) is not poisonous, but inhaling it may cause problems for people whose respiratory system is already compromised by disorders such as asthma or emphysema. The abrasive texture can cause irritation and scratching of the surface of the eyes. People who wear contact lenses should wear glasses during an ashfall, to prevent eye damage. Furthermore, the combination of volcanic ash with moisture in the lungs can create a substance akin to liquid cement.
Therefore, people should take caution to filter the air they breathe with a damp cloth or a face mask when facing an ashfall.
