New Zealand Volcano Erupts Ash Causing Flight Disruptions

On Wednesday, Mount Tongariro erupted a cloud of ash that has caused major flight disruptions in New Zealand.  This is the second eruption in less than four months, with a dark plume of ash reaching 3 km into the sky.  No significant damage was done and hikers and 100 middle school students and their teachers who were at the base of the mountain were safe from harm.


Authorities have issued a no-fly zone above the mountain on central North Island.  Air New Zealand has issued an advisory to all passengers that there might be some flight delays and cancellations due to the eruption.  A spokesperson with the airline, Brigitte Ransom, said that by mid-afternoon two flights had been cancelled.  Civil defense authorities have advised people in the area to remain indoors and keep windows shut.
