Chaitén volcano (Chile), activity update: continuing lava dome growth, ash eruptions

The new lava dome of Chaitén volcano continues to grow and emit a dense plume of mainly vapour, typically rising to ca. 2 km altitude. Seismic activity beneath the volcano remains high.
Heavy rainfalls cause the Chaitén river and tributaries to transform into mud flows and overflow their natural and artificial banks. Water and mud have been destroying ever larger parts of Chaité city, which is now almost completely abandoned.
