Dry weather brings blown ash in South Iceland, despite dormant volcano

eyjafjall6-little1South Iceland is being affected by volcanic ash clouds, despite the fact that Eyjafjallajokull has stopped creating ash. The dust is spreading due to the current dry and breezy weather.

The road at Solheimasandur was practically impassible yesterday evening and police in Hvolsvollur are still advising against non-essential travel in the area.

The inconvenient ash fall stretches as far as the town of Hvolsvollur and will continue until all the ash has been blown away or until it rains. No injuries or accidents have been reported as a result of the ash and it is a level far below any aviation, so airports remain unaffected.
