Llaima Erupts

On Tuesday the Llaima volcano in southern Chile-- the most active volcano in South America-- erupted, spewing lava and ash, and forcing evacuations. According to IHT:
A column of smoke rose more than 9,300 feet into the sky and television images showed thick smoke and lava emerging from Llaima, one of the most active of the dozens of volcanos in Chile.
The volcano is about 60 miles east of Temuco, in the Araucania region of Chile. Temuco is the childhood home of Pablo Neruda.

It's not clear whether this signals the start of a large eruption, or a smaller event.
