Ash clouds from a volcano in Iceland are causing travel disruptions at Dulles. Air connections between major U.S. cities and Britain were canceled today after a volcano in Iceland spewed huge clouds of ash into the skies above northern Europe, making flying too dangerous.
Dulles began reporting cancellations to London and the rest of Northern Europe by mid-morning.
The next scheduled flight from Dulles to Heathrow is at 6:03 p.m.
The only flight out of Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport isn't scheduled until 9:05 p.m.
Airspace over Britain could reopen shortly after lunchtime, our time, but some officials are predicting the problem could linger for days. Make sure to check with your airline before you head out to your flight.
