Chaiten volcano (Chile), activity update: growing lava dome, ash eruptions

jueves jun 12, 2008 09:30 |

Chaiten's new lava dome continues to grow rapidly inside the crater left by the sub-plinian eruption on 2 May. Over the past week, ash plumes produced by explosions rose to maximum altitude of 3 km (10,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted SE.
SENAGEOMIN reported from overflight observations that about 2500 hectares (6,200 acres) of forest on the N and NE flanks of the volcano were burned by pyroclastic flows or lateral explosions.
The area around Chaiten remains closed. Slowly the evacuated town of Chaiten is being buried under mud flows (lahars).
