Eruption is over really?

According to Update on activity Eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland from the Icelandic Met Office

«On ashfall 23 May 2010 11:45

The eruption activity is minimal and therefore no significant ashfall is expected. The volcano is still being monitored and an ashfall forecast will be issued if neccessary.»

According to Iceland Weather Report post

The volcanic eruption has been fairly low-key this past week, and according to reports from this morning it appears to have stopped altogether.

At least for the time being.

Reporter Ómar Ragnarsson flew over the crater this morning and told RÚV that there is no ash in the plume and it looks like the eruption has stopped completely.
