Thousands Evacuate As Chile Volcano Erupts Twice In 24 Hours
Chile's Calbuco volcano erupted twice in a span of 24 hours, once Wednesday evening and again early Thursday morning.
Chile is located in an area of the Pacific Ocean known as the Ring of Fire, which has 75% of the world's active volcanoes.
Despite this being considered one of Chile's more dangerous volcanoes, the last time it erupted was more than 40 years ago in 1972.
And the last major eruption was in 1961, according to the Global Volcanism Program run by the Smithsonian Institution.
Currently, there have been no reports of missing persons or deaths with this most recent eruption.
