15 Insane Photos From The Massive Volcano Eruption In Chile

Over 4,000 people have been evacuated.
15 Insane Photos From The Massive Volcano Eruption In Chile

A volcano that has been dormant for nearly 50 years has erupted not once, but twice in the same day in Chile

The first eruption shot a thick pillar of smoke and ashes into the air, nearly 7 kilometers high!

The area, which is luckily not very densely populated, was evacuated and a state of emergency has been declared. There is even a curfew currently in effect and the military has been sent in help. (but wait a second... isn't our Mont Royal a volcano?!)

Many flights to Chile and Argentina have been cancelled and thankfully, according to The Guardian there are no reported deaths or injuries.
