On the Radar: Volcano, taxes and Tea Party

Smoke billows Wednesday from an erupting volcano in Iceland.

Here’s a look at some of the stories CNN.com reporters are working on Wednesday:

Iceland volcano – CNN has had stories over the last few weeks about the volcano that erupted under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland for the first time since 1821. Residents were evacuated while some tourists turned up to watch. But now the huge plume of ash from the volcano is spreading through the skies, closing airspace and bringing travel chaos to northern Europe. CNN will be plotting the airport closures and asking meteorologists where the cloud will affect next as well as seeking pictures of the volcano, which are quite stunning, particularly if you are not affected.

Tax Day: It's April 15 and for many people that means just one thing - got to file those tax returns! CNN will be watching for the expected last-minute rush at tax preparers and post offices.
