Volcanic Ash Cloud... How much will it affect us?

Postby auntieM » Sun Apr 18, 2010 7:09 pm

With most of Euro airspace shut down and massive flight cancellation round the globe..things are getting pretty gloomy.
Hopefully the expert who predicts that Earth will go 'sunless' for a year is wrong, or it will really be gloomy.. ...

Are you worried or affected in any way?

Regarding the Earth becoming "sunless", I seriously doubt it will happen in our or next generations.

Nevertheless, this volcanic ash cloud is causing much impact because of its big scale eruption and also the direction which the ash cloud is blowing happens to be in the busy flight paths.

auntieM,
think my europe colleague who is due to fly back on Tuesday may not be able to leave singapore...

I hope the weather will not be hot and dusty then... this ashes and dust will have to settle somewhere. and i get very worried when i thought of this. if its going to settle down in some city, will the whole city be buried under the ashes and dust?

i think i think too much...

Next few days will be crucial and I hope things will get better.
Really pity those travellers that are stuck at the airports, especially those wintry places and worse if you got your elderly and kiddos with you.. ..

Could only say that I'm really glad I wasn't the one who went to Europe last week... my colleague is stuck there now.
