SANTIAGO, Chile The Puyehue volcano in southern Chile erupted Saturday, sending a huge plume of smoke and ash into the sky and prompting officials to evacuate about 600 people living nearby. There were no reports of injuries.
Authorities had put the area around the volcano on alert Saturday morning after a flurry of earthquakes, and the eruption began in the afternoon. The National Emergency Office said it recorded an average of 230 tremors an hour.

praying for the Chilean people:pray:

Yea it is, but not unusual for a volcano about to erupt. Tremors are felt as the magma rises. This volcano was being watched closely and on a yellow alert status for the last 2 months. Looks like they did a good job of predicting the eruption and alerting people around it.

Some towns are being hit by heavy ashfall. Here is a link with some good pictures (in Spanish).

Or, Revelation 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. :eek: :hmm: :idea:
