Chile volcanic eruption

After 9000 years of dormancy, Chaiten Volcano in Chile stirred to life on May 2nd. The images below show the plume of ash extending from Chile, across Argentina, and out over the Atlantic ocean on May 5th. The eruption has forced the evacuation of two nearby towns, and an estimated 25,000 cattle near the volcano could die of starvation because their food is covered by up to 15 cm of ash.

The story and images can be found on the NASA Earth Observatory site.

Grace and Peace
