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.

The eruption at Puyehue-Cordón Caulle continues to be big. In its latest bulletin, SERNAGEOMIN reports that a dense pulsating column of ash is erupted and reaches up to 9 km altitude, corresponding to strongly fluctuating levels of tremor. At night, the lower 1.5-2 km of the column show incandescence. The eruption column produces a visible plume of 250 km length to the SE where heavy ashfall occurs. Further apart, in Argentinia and across the globe in Australia and New Zealand, the ash plume which is now circling around the southern hemisphere continues to cause serious disruption of air traffic.
