photos of Volcano Eruption In Chile That Will Leave You Speechless

Every time there is a volcano eruption it is a spectacular event. As a general rule, photos of volcano eruptions are always impressive.

The Calbuco volcano in Chile located in the southern Los Lagos region of Chile has erupted ten times since 1837, the eruption you see in the pictures below caught everyone by surprise. The volcano is located in the cities of Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas which have a combined population of 250,000 people.

The authorities have announced a 20km radius around the volcano for evacuation and even Argentina warned her citizens to stay in their homes. The eruption was huge, there is a lot of smoke rising from the volcano with some fiery lightning streaked eruptions.

Calbuco is a stratovolcano which means its ” composite volcano ” it’s made up of layers of ash, pumice, lava etc. The most dangerous thing about these type of volcanos is their propensity for producing pyroclastic flows, frighteningly fast ground hugging flows of ash, debris and hot gas. We hope the Chileans will only have to experience amazing views like these ones
