Just today I was exchanging email with a priest in England about my hopping over for a visit to Old Blighty and my friends there.
Then I hear about nearly all flights canceled because of the Icelandic volcano….Eyja… Eyjaja… Eyafjallajokull.
Then I found this interesting story on Market Watch:
LONDON, Apr 15, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — A major eruption of Italy’s Mount Vesuvius could result in 8,000 fatalities, 13,000 serious injuries and total economic losses of more than $24 billion, according to a new study supported by the Willis Research Network (WRN) that puts Vesuvius at the top of the list of Europe’s 10 most dangerous volcanoes.
There is a handy list of dangerous volcanoes near tourist places for your neurosis and/or trip planning.
