Calbuco Volcano Erupts in Chile

Calbuco Volcano Erupts in Chile

Volcano Calbuco in southern Chile erupted for the first time in more than four decades on Wednesday, sending a thick plume of ash and smoke several kilometres into the sky. The plume could be seen as far as 50 kilometres away. In this video you can also see the impact of this eruption.

Update: We updated this gallery with new pictures of places covered with ashes from the volcano.
