Villarrica volcano erupts in southern Chile, thousands flee
3/3/15

PUCON, Chile (AP) — One of South America's most active volcanoes erupted early Tuesday in southern Chile, spewing heavy smoke into the air as lava surged down its slopes, prompting authorities to evacuate thousands of people.

The Villarrica volcano erupted around 3 a.m. local time, according to the National Emergency Office, which issued a red alert and ordered evacuations. Local media showed images of the volcano bursting at the top, glowing in the dark amid heavy smoke and rivers of lava. Authorities worried that mudslides caused by melting snow could endanger nearby communities, but no injuries were reported.

The 9,000 foot (2,847-meter) volcano in Chile's central valley, 400 miles (670 kilometers) south of Santiago, sits above the small city of Pucon, which has a population of about 22,000 people.

"It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen," 29-year-old Australian tourist Travis Armstrong said in a telephone interview from Pucon. "I've never seen a volcano erupt and it was spewing lava and ash hundreds of meters into the air. Lightning was striking down at the volcano from the ash cloud that formed from the eruption."

Chilean authorities had issued an orange alert on Monday because of increased activity at the volcano. About 3,500 people have been evacuated so far, including tourists, said Interior and Security Minister Rodrigo Penailillo.

Penailillo warned that the eruption was causing numerous rivers in the area to rise as snow along the sides of the volcano began melting. Villarrica is covered by a glacier cap covering some 40 square kilometers (15 square miles) and snow from about 1,500 meters (about 5,000 feet) on up.

Authorities were keeping an eye on four nearby communities that could be endangered by mudslides as the snow melts. Officials were also monitoring nearly 200 people who were cut off from main roads when two bridges were destroyed by rising waters from nearby rivers.

Rodrigo Alvarez, director of the National Service of Geology and Mining, issued a warning for people in the area, especially at tourists, to be careful. "This is not a fireworks show," Alvarez said, calling on people to obey official prohibitions to stay away from the volcano.

"It's an unstable volcano, all of its borders are altered," Alvarez added.

President Michelle Bache let arrived in Pucon amid cheers and boos later Tuesday to check on safety preparations, and declared an agricultural emergency to help local farmers.

"You never know when an eruption will take place but what we do know is that the activity is lower, that's visible," Bachelet said after flying over the affected areas and meeting local authorities.

Witnesses said Pucon looked like a deserted town at dawn. But as the volcanic activity decreased, some local residents had decided to return to their homes, more cars were seen in the streets, and some people had even decided to sunbathe at a nearby lake. By midday, the community's bus terminals, banks, restaurants and other businesses were operating normally.

The eruption "was something beautiful and amazing. We're still a bit shocked but the volcano has calmed down so I'm going to continue with my vacation," Alejandra Paz Bustos, 29, said as she sunbathed at nearby lake Villarrica.

Jose Manuel Reyes, the 37-year-old manager of La Bicicleta hostal in downtown Pucon, said visitors from France, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Brazil watched the early morning eruption from the building's terrace.

"We're still a bit nervous because we don't know what's happening," said Reyes. "There was nervousness, but we haven't seen any panic."

Tourists flock to the area around Villarrica for outdoor activities like kayaking, horseback riding, fishing and hiking around the volcano, which last had a major eruption in 1984. Dozens of tourists were among those evacuated. Officials said late Tuesday that about 15,000 people living in rural areas near the volcano were suffering water shortages after the eruption, and kept the red alert for nearby areas.

The Villarrica has a crater of about 200 meters (yards) in diameter and a lake of lava about 150 meters (yards) deep. It has periodic eruptions every 10 or 15 years.

Chile has more than 2,000 volcanoes in the Andes cordillera and about 90 of them remain active. Villarrica is considered among the country's most dangerous.

Calbuco volcano blankets towns in Chile with ash
April 24, 2015
-  Southern Chile has been clearing ash that rained down on towns after an eruption of the Calbuco volcano.  The volcano, which had been dormant for 40 years, erupted on Wednesday, sending a plume of smoke and ash 10km (6 miles) into the sky.
7 hours later the volcano erupted again, this time shooting lava into the air and generating volcanic lightning.

Authorities evacuated people living within a 21km (13 mile) radius.
Road workers used lorries to plough through the ash, which lay up to a metre (3 feet) deep in some places.
As the massive ash cloud drifted south, emergency workers handed out protective masks in a wide area including parts of Chile and Argentina.
"The ash might damage crops, animal feed, bridges, roads, people's work routines, tourism and especially their health," Michelle Bachelet, President of Chile's National Geology and Mines Service, said. he first eruption on Wednesday evening lasted about 90 minutes and send a huge mushroom cloud of ash into the sky.

Volcanoes create their own weather, eruptions produce lightnings.

Chile's National Geology and Mines Service said that a third eruption is possible.
Volcanic eruptions are frequent in Chile, which has in total of active 500 volcanoes. It is considered to have the second largest chain of volcanoes in the world after Indonesia.

Calbuco volcano causes flight problems
April 25, 2015
-  International flights are being delayed or cancelled because of the Calbuco volcano ash cloud the in Chile.  Volcanic ash can be extremely dangerous to aircraft as the fine particles can damage engines.  One flight forced to turn back to Australia.  Two flights from the United States had to return to their departure airports.  One Air France flight from Paris to Santiago had to land in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and another destined for Buenos Aires landed in Rio de Janeiro.  All the passengers are likely to have to remain in Brazil until at least Saturday.

Chile volcanic ash cloud blankets much of the continent
April 25, 2015
-  When Volcano Calbuco erupted in Chile without warning, everyone within a 12 mile radius was evacuated immediately. The ash cloud from the explosion reached 9 miles into the sky and has already covered much of the continent. Flights from Argentina have been canceled. The weight of the ash has caused roofs to cave in.

CHILE
Guallatire volcano waking
June 3, 2015
-   Guallatiri is one of the most active volcanoes in northern Chile near the border with Bolivia. The volcano last erupted in 1960. Same year as Mt St Helens and a Japan volcano.

Elevated seismic activity since 30 May triggered SERNAGEOMIN to raise the alert level of the volcano to “yellow.” A swarm 22 earthquakes related to rock fracturing, possibly caused by rising magma, was registered shortly after midnight 30-31 May. A magnitude 3.7 quake occurred at 05:17 local time the next morning.

At the same time, slight deformation of the summit area of the volcano was detected as well, which would be consistent with a new magma intrusion at depth.
