Volcano’s most powerful since 1873

The explosion of the Grimsvotn volcano has raised worries of a repeat of the volcano-related travel chaos that stranded 10 million passengers and cost the air industry an estimated US$1.7-billion in lost revenue last year.

The eruption is the volcano’s most powerful since 1873 and stronger than the volcano that caused trouble last year.
