Volcano ash cloud likely to reach Austria tonight.
(ADPnews) - May 18, 2010 - The ash cloud from the Icelandic volcano will probably spread over Austria in the small hours of Wednesday, the country's Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) said.
The density of the ash particles is still unknown but air traffic supervisory organisation Austro Control does not expect a ban on flights to become necessary.
According to ZAMG, the biggest ash concentration will be above western Austria and the central Alpine area.
The situation is constantly under observation. It makes no sense to give long-term predictions, Austro Control spokesman Markus Pohanka said.
After causing severe disruption to air traffic in Europe last month, the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland impeded flights in certain parts of Europe again yesterday.
