Redoubt Mini-update for 2/18/2009

  1. In the meantime, I wanted to alert people of renewed activity at Chaiten. Since there is not a recent post about Chaiten, I am putting it here.
    The Volcanism Blog ( ) is reporting the following:
    “The Chilean national emergencies office, ONEMI, is reporting ‘a reactivation of the eruptive process’ at Chaitén volcano today at around 11:00 local time. Evacuation of the remaining residents of the town is under way. ONEMI reports the eruption of a considerable column of ash.
    A good friend of The Volcanism Blog reports from nearby Futaleufú that at 1pm local time today ‘Futa is engulfed in total darkness with a fine layer of ash falling’.
    And the Chaitén airfield webcam has chosen today to go offline.
    More on this event when we have it.”
