Thousands have been evacuated in southern Chile following a massive double eruption of the Calbuco volcano – its first in over 42 years. The government has declared a red alert, as thick clouds of ash and smoke shot up several kilometers into the sky.
The volcano is located near the tourist location of Puerto Varas, about 1,000km south of the capital, Santiago.

The last video shows the moment the Calbuco Volcano erupted in southern Chile on Wednesday, April 22, captured by an airport camera in the nearby city of Puerto Montt.
