I live about 200km away from the volcano, in a city called "Osorno". Shit's crazy. Thunders and ashes.

Whoa ... Scary stuff. The amount of ash that thing is throwing up is staggering. I wonder how it will effect weather patterns.

I hope my fellow ChileGAF members are alright. Does anybody of you guys have a family member/friend/acquaintance in the area nearby Calbuco? If so, were you able to communicate with them?

My cousins live in Puerto Varas, they are safe. But scared.

Guys, wanna know something else? There's another active volcano here in Chile! Yeah, that's right. It can also erupt at any time now. The name of that Volcano is "Volcán Villarica" and it's only 400km (approximately) from the other volcano.

There is no way I could have seen that last pic in person and not empty my bowels. Me vs a planet, barehanded.

Wow talk about once in a lifetime pictures, the red with the lightning is an absolutely beautiful yet destructive image of the raw elements.

I hope everyone makes it through this safely, I can't even fathom what it must be like looking at the sky and seeing this happening.

Nuts.

My first thought of this picture, was of a crappy 80's movie, Night of the Comet.

And there's another: "Laguna del Maule"

If Laguna del Maule explodes we are fucked, especially me because I live "near" the zone. I read that it could be similar to the Tambora disaster in 1815.

A pyroplastic flow could happen in any volcano. God protect us all.
