BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport flower wholesaler says the volcanic eruption in Iceland that has grounded flights over parts of Europe has caused a shortage of some flowers.

C and C Cut Flowers says some specialty items like Spray Orchids are in short supply.

Owner Tony Clomiro says he is also importing some flowers normally flown in from Europe from places like California, Ecuador or Columbia.

Clomiro expects his European shipments to resume as normal this weekend.
