Though it was short, it managed to produce the same amount of ash in 36 hours as Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano that erupted last year, did in 40 days. And it managed to ground airpolanes, at least for a few hours in Scotland, Denmark, Norway and Germany.
Apparantly there’s still some possibility of European flights disruption as the remains of the volcanic ash cloud continues to drift southwards but it all depends on the changing weather patterns. At least for now, the volcano is not adding to the ash cloud, only some residual steam.
