Chaiten Volcano Erupts in Chile

______________________________



.
20 Feb 09 – Chile’s Chaiten volcano roared back to life yesterday, spewing ash high into the air, sending volcanic material down the mountain's slope, and threatening to block a river and trigger flooding. The ash fell 100 miles away in Futaleufu.

Chaiten erupted on May 2, 2008, for the first time in an estimated 9,000 years.
