New Pictures of Ash Fallout in Iceland

Visir.is has received pictures of the ash fallout in the Medalland countryside near Kirkjubaejarklaustur in south Iceland. The photos were taken at 11 am this morning and show how thick the ash layer is in the vicinity of the eruption.

The Civil Protection Department has advised people to cover their nose and mouth with dust masks in the regions close to the eruption as there is a great deal of ash in the air.

At the moment there is a westerly wind, but according to information from the Icelandic Meteorological Office, the wind direction could change and come from the north next weekend.
