CHILE, FRUTILLAR : View from Frutillar, southern Chile, of lava spewing
from the Calbuco volcano, on April 23, 2015. Chile’s Calbuco volcano
erupted on Wednesday, spewing a giant funnel of ash high into the sky
near the southern port city of Puerto Montt and triggering a red alert.
Authorities ordered an evacuation for a 10-kilometer (six-mile) radius
around the volcano, which is the second in southern Chile to have a
substantial eruption since March 3, when the Villarrica volcano emitted a
brief but fiery burst of ash and lava. AFP PHOTO/MARTIN BERNETTI
