Chile’s Llaima Volcano Erupts (Video)

Chile’s Llaima volcano, one of South America‘s most active, spewed a more-than-1,000 meter flow of lava on Saturday, prompting evacuations and landslide warnings.

The volcano, dormant for half a year, emitted lava and ash and sent massive plumes of volcanic rubbles up to 600 meters above its crater.

Authorities ordered the closure of Conguillio National Park where the volcano is located and evacuated the 10 people who were inside it.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, but local authorities have put residents on alert.

The Llaima volcano lies about 700 km. south of the capital Santiago, has erupted a number of times in recent years. Its last big eruption occurred in January last year.
