Half of all Europe's flights were back in the air Tuesday, but more ash from Iceland's erupting volcano threatened to stall plans to reopen British airspace - including at London's Heathrow, one of the world's busiest airports.
Eruptions from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano are weakening, authorities in Iceland reported, but volcanic ash already in the air continued to blow towards Britain.
Gary Tuchman is reporting live from Iceland where he'll have the latest developments on the erupting volcano and its impact on travel delays. CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers will also answer questions about what to expect. Do you have questions? Let us know!

How is this going to effect summer vacations of people who are wanting to travel to Europe? Say Italy or France or even England or Ireland?
I was planning a trip to Italy later on this year but now I'm afraid to? Not knowing what is going to happen and if I will get stuck over there for a long period?
Is there any way of predicting how long this episode will last? I read somewhere that the last one (90 years ago) lasted two years!! I also saw (on CNN maybe?) how the volcano flow is melting underground glacial ice; glaciers under farmland. How is that affecting farm families? After all of this is over, what will be left? Swampland?
