Flights Cancelled in Chile as Volcano Erupts

The southern Chilean Volcano Calbuca erupted without warning on Wednesday and continues to pour ash into the sky on Thursday.  This eruption has caused the cancellation of flights coming in from nearby towns in Chile and Argentina.  The last major eruption of this volcano was in 1961 and this eruption has blown an amazing plume of ash and smoke almost 20 km into the sky.

As of Thursday, more than 4,000 people had been evacuated from the area immediately surrounding the volcano.  The primary focus of emergency services has been the small town of Ensenada, which is only 15 km from the volcano.  Flights to and from the Chilean city of Puerto Montt were cancelled, as were flights from the Argentinian city of Bariloche, where schools were also closed.  Volcanic ash can cause dangerous flying conditions and damage aircraft.
