The might of the Calbuco volcano

Located in southern Chile, in the vicinity of the town of Puerto Montt, the Calbuco volcano recently erupted three times for the first time in nearly half a century, spewing a giant funnel of ash high into the sky.

Authorities in Chile preemptively evacuated over 5,000 people from the area, as well as animal stock, although the eruption did not cause any fatalities.
