Dangerous Clouds in the Iceland Sky

In Iceland a quiet volcano that has had no activity in years, is now creating more than 200 million dollars worth of canceled flights, floods, and health problems.

CNN, does a great job capturing the breaking news, using numbers and getting partail profiles in their piece on the volcano today. Its been a breaking news topic for days now, but they still are finding new ways to right the story and get more information out to the public.

MSNBC also does a good job of using all the news writing techniques we have talked about to create an orginial story on an unoriginal news feature. They also took on a new problem that is being looked at by the volcanic ash, which is how many leaders of countries may be unable to attend the Polish President's funeral over the weekend. Its a different angle that no one has taken on yet, and adds a lot to the story.
