Eyjafjallajokull is angry.

A volcano beneath Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull (ay-yah-FYAH'-plah-yer-kuh-duhl) glacier began to erupt on Wednesday, now is affecting more than 4,000 flight cancellations to/from European cities. Officials are afraid that the ashes will get trapped in airplane engines and cause them to shut down. It is predicted that more flights will be cancel for Friday, up to 6,000. Many passengers are upset, but who'd risk such danger to fly over ash plumes...Crazy people.

Some experts say this flying volcanic debris and possible air travel disruptions could take up to 6 months to clear. For those traveling to Europe this summer, best of luck that your flight can reroute from Asian hub ports. Air travel has not been this chaotic since WWII and post September 11. This is insane. Time to get cozy at the terminal, hope you brought some deodorant.

One expert says, "Volcanoes are unpredictable." - No kidding.
