Ash Wensday came to Dominica litteraly

Yesterday the Montserrat Soufriere Hills Volcano dome collapsed, shooting up about nine miles (15 kilometers) of ash over Dominica on Thursday. This is one of the most dramatic events in Montserrat since the volcano eruption in 1997, when 19 people was killed and half of the population drove away. While scientists make positive predictions about future of the volcano – a cloud of ash migrates over all of the Caribbean islands. Yesterday it was over Antigua, where flights was canceled. Today the ash cloud over Dominica.

At the first glance, it looks misty – like when its about to rain, but when you take close look around – you will notice that everything is faded: bright green, juicy blue Caribbean sea and sky are gone. And all things outside were covered with a layer of ash – take a look:
