Volcanic ash disrupts flights to Europe
Ash clouds created by the eruption of a volcano in Iceland are blocking the main flight path between the East Coast and Europe.
The ash has led to the closure of half a dozen airports and thousands of planes have been grounded, leaving many passengers stranded. Thousands of flights out of JFK were grounded Friday.
Experts say the cloud could hang over Europe for the rest of the weekend.
Flight restrictions over Northern Ireland and Scotland are being lifted, while flights over England and Wales were banned through Saturday morning.
It is estimated all the cancellations have cost the airline industry $200 million a day.
