The eruption of Chile’s Calbuco volcano has resulted in a cloud of ash beginning to spread on Friday into the City of Buenos Aires while the alert in southern cities of Argentina remains.
Uruguay's emergency system, Sinae confirmed on Friday that the ashes from Chile's Calbuco volcano eruption have reached the country and on Saturday will cover the whole of the territory, with some dust precipitations linked to the phenomenon expected.
Chile's Calbuco volcano erupted for the first time in over 42 years on Wednesday, creating a remarkable scene of smoke plumes and ash shooting into the sky. A second eruption Wednesday night blasted red-hot rocks skyward and produced an extraordinary display of volcanic lightning. Winds are pushing the ashes north and easr to several neighboring Argentine provinces.
