Air Travel Problems in Europe Affect Two Gainesville Residents
Thousands of passengers are still stranded in Europe, including some from North Central Florida, after a volcano that erupted in Iceland blew a massive cloud of ash over Europe-- seriously disrupting air travel around the world.
Dr. Nancy Denslow, a professor at UF's vet school, traveled to Norway for a conference last Tuesday, a day before a volcano in Iceland erupted.
Another professor at the vet school, Dr. Nick Bacon, is stranded in the UK, leaving other doctors at the school to care for the animals.
Denslow and Bacon are just two of thousands of people stranded in Europe...
Less than half of Europe's 27,500 flights were given the go-ahead to fly Tuesday.
Officials with the Eurocontrol air traffic agency predict almost normal flight schedules on Friday.
