Volcano eruption forces closure of Iceland airspace

火山喷发迫使冰岛机场关闭

Volcano <wbr>eruption <wbr>forces <wbr>closure <wbr>of <wbr>Iceland <wbr>airspace

 

(CNN) -- A volcanic eruption in Iceland forced flight cancellations and the closure of airspace over the country's four international airports, an official said Sunday.

"There are no international flights in or out of Iceland at this time," Keflavik International Airport spokeswoman Hjordis Gudmunsdottir said.

Officials will reassess the situation at midnight Sunday (8 p.m. EDT), she added.

There was "no impact on European or transatlantic flights" after the Grimsvotn volcano's eruption, and none was expected on Sunday, Europe's umbrella air traffic control association Eurocontrol said.

Ash is expected to reach Scotland on Tuesday and could enter France and Spain on Thursday, Eurocontrol said.

Last year, another Icelandic eruption, of the volcano Eyjafjallajokull, attracted worldwide attention after its ash cloud disrupted air travel across Europe.

Weather patterns this weekend have been very different from the northerly winds that swept through the region after last year's eruption, a spokeswoman for the official United Kingdom weather agency said. But she said the ash cloud's movement is difficult to predict.

Ash could reach the United Kingdom and northern continental Europe Wednesday, she said.

(CNN)--冰岛的一次火山喷发迫使航班取消和整个国家的四个国际机场关闭,一位官员周日说到。

“现在已没有飞往冰岛或从冰岛启航的国际航班,”凯大拉维克国际机场发言人HG说到。

她补充到,官员将在周日午夜(美国东部夏令时间晚上八点)重新评估形势。

Grimsvotn火山喷发对欧洲或跨大西洋的航班没有影响,而且没有人想在周日乘飞机,欧洲航空交通管制协会E说到。

火山灰预计在周二到达苏格兰,在周四可能进入法国和西班牙,E说到。

去年的冰岛另一次Eyjafjallajokull火山喷发,在它的火山灰云中断了整个欧洲的航空后,聚焦了全球的目光。

本周的气候类型和去年火山喷发北风吹过的区域有很大的区别,英国官方气候机构发言人说到。全是她说,火山灰云的移动是很难预测的。

火山灰云将在周三到达英国和欧洲的北部区域,她说到。

The Grimsvotn volcano under the Vatnajokull glacier erupted Saturday, according to the Icelandic Meteorological Office.

A dark cloud of smoke rose from the glacier, and scientists flew over the scene to evaluate the event, according to CNN affiliate TV2 Iceland. The last eruption of the volcano was in 2004, TV2 Iceland reported.

"It is important for people to know that not all of Iceland is covered in ash," Gudmunsdottir said.

Sitrun Kapitola, manager of the Islandia Hotel Nupar, which is close to Saturday's eruption, said she could see a cloud of smoke over the mountains, and ash was falling around the hotel.

Police were telling her and others that there was no need to evacuate and there was nothing to fear, Kapitola said. "We see it very well," she said.

Tourists at the hotel were excited to see the eruption, watching the events unfold while eating dinner, she said.

在瓦那冰岭下的Grimsvotn火山在周五喷发,冰岛气象局称。

一块黑色的烟云从瓦那冰岭升起,科学家根据情形评估事态,把CNN子公司TV2冰岛称。上一次火山喷发是在2004年,TV2冰岛报道。

“让人们知道火山灰并没有笼罩整个冰岛,这非常重要,”G说到。

IHN旅店的经理SK称她能够看见山上的烟云,和正在落在旅馆的火山灰。IHN旅馆与喷发的火山很近。

K说到,警察告诉她和其它一些人,没有撤离的必要,也没有什么可害怕的。“我们很快乐地欣赏着它。”她说到。

旅馆的游客非常兴奋的看着火山喷发,吃晚饭时看着整个事件的进展,她说到。

 

"It happens every 10 years," she said. "It mostly produces water."

Grimsvotn is Iceland's most frequently active volcano. In 1783, a 16.7-mile fissure system from the volcano produced the world's largest known historical lava flow over a seven-month period, damaging crops and livestock, according to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. A resulting famine resulted in the loss of one-fifth of Iceland's population, according to the Smithsonian website.

"It's nothing compared to the other one," she added, referring to last year's dramatic eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull.

“它每十年就会喷发一次,”她说到。“它主要的制造了水。”

G是冰岛最活跃的火山。在1783年,来自G火山的16.7米的裂隙系统发射出世界最大的,历史上有名的熔岩流,此熔岩流长达7个月,破坏的庄稼和家畜,这是根据美国国家历史博物馆记载。据联合国博物馆记载,随之而来的饥荒导致了冰岛人口下降了五分之一。

当提到去年 Eyjafjallajokull火大喷发时,她又说到“对其它火山没有什么可对比的。”
