On Saturday, May 21, in the south of Iceland began erupting volcano Grimsvotn.
The volcano threw a column of smoke and ash height 11-15 km. As reported by Icelandic television, in a radius of more than 200 kilometers from the volcano declared no-fly zone.
Scientists, however, believe that the eruption Grimsvotna will not create significant problems for international traffic, as happened in the past year due to the eruption of another volcano, Iceland Eyyafyatlayokudl.
According to meteorologists, the eruption Grimsvotna can lead to ice melting and flooding in some nearby areas of melt water.
Grimsvotn covered the northwestern part of the glacier Vatnayekyudl, and is  considered the most active volcano in the country. Over the past 100 years there were more than 20 major eruptions of the volcano, the last of them was in 2004. Because of it for several weeks has been paralyzed air communication with the international airports Reykjavik, Torshavn, and Akureyri.
