IMO’s radar near Keflavik has not detected the plume from Eyjafjallajökull since 08 o’clock this morning, which implies that it is below 10,000 feet (3 km). There are no reports on ash Sunday-morning. Seismic tremor has been ongoing and is at a strong level this morning.
No flood has been reported. A gauging station near the Markarfljót bridge is being improved and a team from IMO is investigating floodmarks and flood elevation to measure the spread of the flood from Gígjökull on the first day of the eruption, 21 April.

It is extraordinary how Eurocontrol responds to replies. I have no idea who is behind those tweets – is it even Eurocontrol? – but I hope other organisations use this as an example!
