Alaskan volcano could cause travel headaches for McMurrayites

Mount Pavlof started erupting on Sunday in southwestern Alaska, and it’s volcanic ash could disrupt travel in and out of Fort McMurray.

WesJet warned Wednesday morning that an ash cloud, which was spit 6,000 metres into the sky by the active volcano, could end up delaying and cancelling flights to and from the Fort McMurray International Airport.

There has been no impact on operations as of yet, but the company said on social media that they are monitoring the situation closely.

More to come…
