Associated Press

SEATAC, Wash. — A number of European flights at Sea-Tac Airport have been canceled because of the eruption of a volcano in Iceland.

Travelers should check with their airline for flight status.

The European air traffic agency, Eurocontrol, says disruptions are worse Friday than Thursday because of the cloud of volcanic ash drifting east. Half a dozen European nations have closed their airspace.
