Disasters of April 2010 with Unfortunate Consequences

April 2010 has seen some pretty bad & odd outcomes with following disasters around the world.

Today in the Odd Stuff Magazine we are presenting you some fearsome pictures from past month disasters.

Starting of with the Oil Spill, Earthquake in Yushu, Iceland’s disruptive Volcano all were heart-throbbing incidents. I wish next month, our world is safe and there is no such disasters in May.

Oil Spill happened 50 miles (80.6 km) from shore of Louisiana, a state in southern U.S on Gulf of Mexico. The oil platform burned for 36 hours after a massive explosion, then later sank into the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, April 22, 2010, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

Estimated 5,000 barrels (over 200,000 gallons) of crude oil is pouring into the Gulf of Mexico every day – and could possibly continue to do so for months as complicated efforts are made to stop the leak.

Iceland’s disruptive Volcano

Due to Ash of clouds which forced the cancellation of many flights and disrupted the air traffic across northern Europe. Eruption of Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland has happened second time in less than a month, hence melting the ice shooting smoke and producing steam into the air.
