Judgement Day passes, world did not end, travel safe for most
The U.S. Geological Survey reports a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck near New Zealand's Kermadec Islands. Camping had predicted that 'Rapture' would begin with an earthquake in New Zealand.
Also, a magnitude 3.6 quake hit the San Francisco Bay Area at 7:05 p.m. local time on Saturday but emergency officials said there were no reports of serious damage or injury.
The best possible evidence for believers in the "end of the world" scenario came from Iceland.
"The ash is covering up all of Iceland," Hjordís Gudmundsdottir, a spokeswoman for Isavia, Iceland's air navigation services provider told the New York Times. "We are trying to identify some holes in it and to use them to allow some flights, but it's not looking very good right now."
The strong eruption sent ash into the second layer of Earth's atmosphere, the Stratosphere where it can be carried around the globe, blocking out light and creating flight risks for air travelers.
