SERNAGEOMIN warns phase of instability and possible lava flows in Calbuco
The agency said that since last night surface activity increased massif.
The National Service of Geology and Mining (Sernageomin) said the Calbuco volcano entered a new phase of instability that could trigger lava flows from the mountain.
According to the entity "from the night of April 23 increased surface activity of Calbuco volcano, with a column of particulate matter up to 2 miles and preferential scattering toward the northeast sector shown varying east-southeast in the afternoon "accompanied by a continuous seismic tremor signal type".
Therefore the technical agency warned that "the system has entered a new unstable and sustained activity phase, which could be a precursor to a magmatic process lava flows and / or location dome surface."

Those are more ashes than what I was expecting to see. Soon we might need to check the records, if a third event takes place. Thanks for the update.
According to an estimate by the body, it is the fourth largest eruption with ash emissions.
SERNAGEOMIN estimated at 210 million cubic meters of volcanic material issued by the #Calbuco

My friend lives in the south of Argentina (Viedma, aprox. 900 km from the volcano) and the ashes are now covering their skies. This pic he took yesterday lunchtime, the sun high in the sky and yet it was dark like late evening.
