Puyehue volcano (Chile): ash emissions continue, but at lower level

10:12 AM |
The eruption of Puyehue Cordon-Caulle has decreased in intensity, although near continuous ash emissions are still going on. In its latest bulletin on Friday, SERNAGEOMIN reports the height of the ash column did not exceed 3 km, and the plume is drifting at flight level 200 (20,000 ft / ca. 6 km) altitude into Argentina, where the ash fall has become a major problem in several towns and villages near the border, in particular in and around Bariloche. Electricity and water supply have become damaged, impacting the tourist industry severely. As well, faramin, especially of sheep, is suffering heavy losses.
