San Pedro Pellado volcano (Chile): seismic swarm reported at volcano with no known historic activity
Freitag Jun 08, 2012 09:59 | VON: T
An earthquake swarm with possibly hundreds of small quakes has been detected at Chile's San Pedro-Pellado (or Tatara-San Pedro) volcano. Not many details about this activity are available and reports are in parts contradictory, as the Eruptions Blog who brought this to our attention points out.
There is little known about the eruptive history of the volcano except that it most likely has erupted during the past 10,000 years and can be considered an active volcano. Any reawakening would thus mark its first historic eruption, something that would remind what has happened at Chaitén volcano in 2008.
