Lava Column & Lightning Hit Dark Sky As Chile’s Mt. Calbuco Erupts For 2nd Day

For the second day, Chile’s Calbuco volcano is terrorizing neighborhoods, erupting spurts of molten lava, thick smoke and bright lightning. Clouds of ash have blanketed nearby cities and are heading to the capital, Santiago, and neighboring Argentina. This spectacular video shows orange plumes extending miles into the sky. An electrical storm mixed with lava seemed to merge with the surrounding landscape. Calbuco is located near the tourist location of Puerto Varas, about 1,000km south of Santiago. The winds have already carried some of ash clouds to the city of Chillan, which is only 400km from the capital. According to government meteorologist Arnoldo Zuniga, the ash may reach the city by Friday evening.
