Calbuco Volcano Erupts Again

Posted by feww on May 1, 2015

Chile’s Calbuco erupts for the third time in 8 days

The Chilean volcano, located  about 1,000km  south of the capital Santiago, erupted for the third time in eight days on Thursday, sending yet another column of  volcanic matter up to 4km into the air.

The 2,015-meter high Calbuco, an extremely explosive andesite volcano, ejected about 200 million tons of ash into the atmosphere last week, blanketing multiple towns and communities, damaging the nearby salmon farms and forcing flight cancellation as far as the Argentine capital Buenos Aires, about 1,400 km away.

However, Thursday’s eruption was notably less powerful than the previous two explosions, which prompted the evacuation of thousands of nearby villagers.

The red alert  and a 20-km exclusion zone remains in effect, said Chile’s ONEMI emergency office, as officials evacuated an additional 1,580 people.

The total number of evacuees in the Los Lagos region now stands at 6.685  people.

ONEMI has posted the following update (Spanish) on its website:
