Calbuco Volcano Eruption Update


After Chile’s Calbuco Volcano in the southern Lakes region of Patagonia erupted for it’s 3rd time 5-days ago, it has since quieted down.  Calbuco is located 891 kms south of Santiago (approximately 620 miles), 14 miles outside of the city of Puerto Montt in the Llanquihue National Reserve.

A cloud of ash 20 kms high sent ash across the border into Argentina, forcing the San Martin de Los Andes and Bariloche Airports to close.  This temporary closure has now ended and we are pleased to announce that everything in Argentina and around the areas in Chile are functioning as usual again.

The Calbuco Volcano erupted for the first time since 1972 back on April 22, 2015 and forced evacuation of over 4,000 inhabitants in the surrounding villages.  This is the first major volcanic eruption in chile since the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle Volcano eruption back in 2011.

We will update our blog periodically as changes warrant, with the status of the Calbuco Volcano.
