Llaima volcano in Chile is erupting. The Chilean Government’s Oficina Nacional de Emergencia (ONEMI) reported yesterday that from around 20:00 local time incandescence at the crater was visible from the adjacent areas of Cherquenco and Vilcún, and to a lesser extent from Melipeuco. The various emergency and civil protection committees were duly activated. A further bulletin earlier today reported that ‘an eruption of weak character is taking place at Llaima volcano with small explosions and eruptions of pyroclastic material at the level of the crater.
