Did anyone expect the volcano in Greenland to erupt?

    The volcano that erupted recently was in Iceland.  The name of the volcano is Eyjafjallajökull, and it began erupting on March 20th, 2010.  

    This is an active volcano, therefore it have been erupting throughout the history of it’s emergence.  Any active volcano is liable to erupt without too much forewarning.  They did not however expect the intensity and the lasting effects on Western Europe and their air travel.  



    Interestingly, there is a larger neighbouring volcano named Katla which has mirrored the eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull throughout their history.  Icelandic President Ólafur Grímsson has released statements warning European nations of an impending eruption from Katla,  “the time for Katla to erupt is coming close … we [Iceland] have prepared … it is high time for European governments and airline authorities all over the world to start planning for the eventual Katla eruption”.

    I have linked a video which is an incredibly beautiful, vivid, and fluid look at what the volcano looked like erupting, as well as some incredible Icelandic scenery.  Set to the equally awing music of Jonsi.
