The director of the National Service of Geology and Mining of Chile (Sernageomin), Enrique Valdivieso said that the ashes of the volcanic complex will
Puyehue-Cordón Caulle around the world as moving "at very high speeds." "They may be traveling around the world, definitely," added the expert.
According to recent data, the Puyehue has lost the stability that had until Monday, with columns of up to five miles off the double registration
The ash ejected from the crater could move for months, since "the higher the ash, the more it spreads." Valdivieso considered difficult to predict how
much longer will this affect air traffic. However, what predicts the concentration of gas clouds and pollution in the area will continue for "about
"Today the situation has been little more instability. We increased the number of earthquakes than we had yesterday, followed by an average of six
earthquakes per hour. It is normal for this type of event," said Valdivieso, CNN quoted by Chile.
It compares the current phenomenon with the eruption of 1960 and claims to be a broken field, known as a failure.
Not fall forward while volcanic activity, the displaced can not return to their homes. "If I had another event with a force could be a danger to
surrounding communities," he argues, while clarifies that so far there is flowing lava.
"We believe that the primary could be a material that sheds new fracture at the top of the valley that could be the most dangerous situation," he
concludes, according to the newspaper "La Tercera".
Puyehue's ashes have now reached New Zealand and Australia. The Cordillera of Chile - with more than 2,000 volcanoes in the Andes - the second
largest concentration of volcanic world, after Indonesia. Between 50 and 60 have erupted once and a half thousand potentially active.
