Planes stop in Europe , and volcano still going strong - video

The Volcano in Iceland is still going strong.
Towns near the volcano are preparing for ash coming ,when the wind direction will change.
Westmann Islands,few kilometeres sout of the volcano,had a big eruption in 1973.
Then the island was evacuated in a few hours, around 5000 people.
The ash cloud is now affecting aviation in Europe.
Many countries have closed ,for outgoing and incoming planes.
United Kingdom is all closed ,due to the danger ,if planes fly into the ash.
The international airport in Iceland , Keflavik is still open.
Here is a video of the volcano site,taken on the Icelandic Coast Guard helicopter.
