Iceland volcano ash drifts over Scandinavia

The Iceland volcano that forced European airports to cancel flights last weekend is producing a new wave of ash clouds.

This time, the clouds are drifting over Scandinavia and causing flight restrictions in Scotland and forcing airports in Norway and Sweden to close.

Meanwhile, stranded passengers in Europe and the U.S. are finally getting on flights and making their way to their destinations after being displaced for about a week.

The ash clouds forced the cancellation of more than 100,000 flights. Airlines suffered more than $2 billion in losses as a result of the canceled flights.
