Chile’s Volcano Eruption
Nature. It’s quiet, it’s serene and it’s our mother. But then, moms lose it too on someday. Sometimes we are responsible for it and at other times, well, thats how nature is. Calbuco volcano in Chile is a classic example of just that. The giant, volcanic monster was asleep for about 42 years and then it suddenly erupted with no prior warnings what-so-ever. The government evacuated over 4000 people immediately and things have been quiet serious since then. The volcano was considered the third most dangerous one among all the volcanoes that have erupted in Chile. Luckily, no lives have been lost, but the lava and the ash have converted several places into ghost towns. The images literally send chills down the spine and stand witness to nature’s moods. Chile’s Calbuco volcano is the latest classic example of nature’s wrath and what it can do when we exploit it too much. The images below are ridiculously beautiful and blood curdling in the same breath. It’s the agony and ecstasy of nature’s wonders. Here’s sincerely people there stay safe and get back to normal life sooner than soon. We cannot thank God enough for keeping everyone safe out there.

When things got worse
This entire week saw the giant, monstrous volcano erupting more than once beginning from the 22nd of April. The ash from the volcano was shot for over six miles into the sky. On the 24th of April, Friday, more ash was seen heading towards the sky and therefore immediate evacuations were ordered in order to save more lives. The Telegraph also posted a video on Youtube that showed the fierce volcano and its effects in a Timelapse. You can watch it below.
Let’s hope that no lives are harmed in this massacre and that nature doesn’t strike this hard again anywhere else.
