Description of the event

Chile's Llaima volcano belched ash 7 km into the sky in an intensifying eruption. It began spitting lava on 3 April and continues to permanently erupt with explosions, lava flows and ash. Approximately 70 people were evacuated overnight because of the risk of mud avalanches as the lava melts snow on the volcano.
