Raw: Calbuco Volcano Erupts For The First Time In Over 42 Years in Chile & Argentina!


Chile’s Calbuco volcano erupted for the first time in over 42 years on Wednesday, creating a remarkable scene of smoke plumes and ash shooting into the sky. A second eruption Wednesday night blasted red-hot rocks skyward and produced an extraordinary display of volcanic lightning. Ash from the first eruption had already spread far to the north and northeast of the volcano by the time the second eruption occurred. Social media photos showed ash blanketing cars and streets in San Martin de los Andes, a town in western Argentina about 105 miles northeast of Calbuco. Ash was also reported in Villarica and Pucón, neighboring towns about 140 miles north of the volcano.
