Puyehue Cordon-Caulle volcano (Chile): new eruption?

Tuesday Jan 22, 2013 07:04 AM | BY: T

We reported a new eruption yesterday from Caulle volcano, but it soon turned out that the observed ash plume originated from very vigorous remobilization of ash deposits on the volcano.
There is NO new eruption.
Ash emissions reaching 11,000 ft (3.4 km) altitude were originally reported by Buenos Aires VAAC. Local news reported ash fall ash fall over Puyehué, Entre Lagos and Osorno today.
