Calbuco volcano (Chile): new explosion
Thursday Apr 30, 2015 21:47 PM | DOOR: T
Ash column erupted from Calbuco today
A strong explosive eruption occurred today (12:10 on 30 April, local time) at the volcano, producing an ash column that rose several kilometers above the summit crater.
VAAC Buenos Aires estimated the height of the plume at 16,000 ft (5 km) altitude. The explosion came after a gradual decrease in activity with weak ash emissions during the past days.
The alert level remains at red (highest).

Activity has been lower yesterday, but weak ash emissions continued at least intermittently. ...

Mild to moderate emissions of ash and incandescent material (probably as strombolian explosions) continue at the summit vent(s). A small ash plume rises approx. 1 km and is currently drifting east. ...
Friday, Apr 24, 2015
Starting from 23:30 local time last night (23 April), activity at the volcano has again increased. The volcano started to produce more or less continuous small to moderate ash emissions, that have been reaching up to 2 km height and drifted mainly northeast. ...

The volcano has so far stayed calm, but the alert level remains at red because another explosion could occur. A major problem in this situation seems to be that eruptions such as the recent one are likely to remain something impossible to predict - at least in some cases. ...

The 21 y-o mountaineer who was missing and feared victim of the eruption has survived and has been rescued, fortunately. Together with a small group of friends, he was on excursion on the mountain when the eruption occurred last night. ...
