  • Chilean Volcano Erupts

    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.

      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).

          zoweee, I'll say!
          Don't seek too much knowledge. You just may be putting more weight on your shoulders than you're able to bare. Let God be the one to decide how quickly you grow.

              I saw a few myself:

              Wicked and beautiful:



              If Satan can keep us busy swinging our swords at one another, there is no hope of a united attack on the kingdom of darkness. KJV, NIV, ESV or ABCDEFG; there is no time to bicker over such things. We'll devour each other if allowed to continue. We should grab the marching orders written in the way we best understand and get to work.

                Whoa, looks like something out of star wars.
                Every temptation is of the devil, and every sin leads to death.
