Chile volcano easing
Could even increase
In fact, activity could even increase.
"It is possible there will be a return to increased eruptive activity" of the volcano, Chile's National Geological and Mines Service said today.
The geologists can't use past performance as an indicator because the volcano's last major eruption in 1960 lasted two weeks, but an earlier one in 1921 lasted two months.
Travelers trying to fly into or over Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, southern Brazil, and Australia have been forced to go by boat, overland, or cancel plans entirely.
Australia's flight cancellations mark the first time in 20 years that an ash cloud from an erupting South American volcano has traveled halfway across the globe, volcanologists said.
The Argentine government today declared an agricultural emergency in three southern provinces, although it noted that "in no case was there ash of more than 15 centimeters (5.9 inches)."
