Volcano erupts in southern Chile (AP): The Llaima volcano erupts spewing lava, ash and smoke in Conguillio National Park, some 650 kms (403 miles) south of Santiago, Tuesday, Jan. 1st, 2008. Even though 150 people were evacuated from the area, no casualties or damage were reported, officials said. (Via Yahoo! News - Science.)
I've part-way to the summit of Llaima in August 2006, but incoming weather prevented a summit attempt. I had hoped to go back to this beautiful, remote volcano in the next year or two, but now it may have to wait, especially if the road and lodge have been damaged.
