For the first time in nearly 40 years, the volcano Calbuco in southern Chile erupted twice, spewing ash for miles. Thousands of people are being evacuated and red alert have been issued for the towns of Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas in southern Chile, according to CNN.
One resident told CNN, “There was a lot of panic, lots of chaos, traffic jams, people going to supermarkets, everyone looking for water, trying to take out money from the ATMs.”
