Videos: Watch Chile’s Calbuco Volcano Erupt For The First Time Since 1972

On April 22, Calbuco volcano in southern Chile erupted. No one saw it coming.

The volcano had been dormant over the last 42 years, yet it erupted twice in just two hours on Wednesday. The first eruption occurred after the initial warning was issued only 15 minutes later.

Thousands of residents in the town of Puerto Montt have been evacuated.

First images of lava emerging from the volcano have already been released. A few residents of Puerto Montt, however, were brave enough to capture video clips of the actual eruption.

Meanwhile, certain parts of Argentina suffered heavy ash falling from the sky after the eruption.
