We have had a few threads recently about a possible eruption of Katla. here is some stronger evidence this big baby could be about to blow her load -

Scientists have warned a second much larger volcano in Iceland is showing signs of eruption, with the government expressing readiness to face a possible crisis

After the successive eruptions of Eyjafjallajokull which caused air traffic mayhem in Europe and brought thousands of flights to a halt earlier in the year, Katla volcano is also threatening to blow

Experts say there has been a 200 percent increase in its volcanic activity in recent days, MSNBC reported

We have prepared ... it is high time for European governments and airline authorities all over Europe and the world to start planning for the eventual Katla eruption,

Sounds like this could be a lot more serious than the previous smaller sister of Katja that delayed flights across europe causing travel chaos and cost millions.

There is a difference between your title saying "to erupt" and
"showing signs of". It's like the difference between a tornado
watch and a warning. Two totally different scenarios.
Anyway, let's hope it doesn't go off. We have enough going on
around the globe without this shutting down even more things.

Historically Katla erupts 6 months after Eyjafjallajokull.

So were getting a closer and closer.

I'm going to say sometime in August...

As tothetenthpower states, throughout history Katla has nearly always erupted after Eyjafjallajokul.

I I think, along with the Earthquake activity, the experts know this is a dead cert.

Time will tell. If it does erupt, it could dwarf Eyjafjallajokul

I know. I was just being my typical smarta$$ self. I hope this doesn't
go off. But I am no expert on volcanos, so I will let the ones that know
respond to this. If it usually goes off about six months later than the
other one, the I guess we should all hang onto our hats again. More
global chaos. Just what we need. yippeee.

How will the U.S. military fly to the middle east to help Israel fight Turkey and Iran if air travel is shut down by this volcano in August?

Well i hope that it just puffs out smoke and goes quiet quickly.

As for the military helping out over seas:
Those nifty new jets that fly into outer space.
Follow the birds south then east perhaps.
the list goes on and on.
Oh and as always. Alien space hybrids that don't have need of an intake into the engines
