Grímsvötn Volcano Eruption 2011 {4 VIDEOS}

New Update: (Tuesday, May 24, 9:35am EST) here: Iceland Volcano Causes Flights of Thousands to be Cancelled.
Update on the Grimsvotn eruption, spread of volcanic ash, and air transport here.

I covered the eruption of the Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland last night as the news broke and just wrote an update on the status of the eruption and a local flight ban. BUT, I know what you all really want — VIDEOS.

Here are four good videos of the eruption, the first of which includes commentary from a TV news company (commentary which seems to make the event more concerning than it actually is, but hey,.. that’s the media for you).

Check out the videos and let us know if you find more (drop the links in the comments below).
