Villarrica: 2 more eruptions

At the Chilean volcano Villarrica 2 more eruptions occurred yesterday. SERNAGEOMIN registered 2 seismic events with long periods of time which indicated the explosive activity. The volcanologists describe the events as moderate. Ash clouds were generated, which rose about 400 m above the crater height. The VAAC Buenos Aires issued 2 VONA messages, but without issuing a warning level for air traffic. The eruption clouds could not be detected by the satellites, which speaks for very weak eruptions. Nevertheless an interesting development, because the behaviour of the volcano seems to change.
