Puyehue Volcano

A violent eruption of a volcano in the Caulle Cordon of southern Chile occurred on June 4th.   The volcano was billowing smoke and ash high into the sky and prompting more than 3,500 people living nearby to evacuate and forcing cancellation of flights. Ash and gas continued to billow from the earth over the weekend. (Pics)

 

There were no reports of injuries from Saturday’s eruption.

A column of gas six miles (10 kilometers) high and three miles (five kilometers) wide rose from Puyehue-Cordon Caulle complex, according to Chile’s National Geology and Mining Service.
