Now We Know: Iceland Has Volcanoes

On April 15, I – and a good portion of the rest of the world – discovered that Iceland has volcanoes.

And not just the boring, dormant kind; they have the kind that disrupts global aviation, poisons farm animals, and causes massive flooding.

Even more fascinating? This was the second eruption in Iceland in less than a month.

Today, there are reports that the British Navy is being dispatched to help bring stranded travelers home and that American ships are also being called into service to help.

Boston.com, the online home of the Boston Globe, has some amazing pictures here.

Look for more pictures from the Washington Post here.

And here’s a map of the general area the volcano has affected:
