Chaiten Volcano

I’m way overdue for a post, and this isn’t that post. But in case you didn’t know, the Michimaguida (which the media has apparently renamed the Chaiten Volcano) blew and Chaiten and Futuleufu have been evacuated. Chaiten was the closest town to one of Martin Pescador lodges. I was about two hours further south. It’s kind of hard to find information online about the towns further south of Chaiten, but I emailed a coworker who lives there so hopefully I’ll hear back from her. Luckily I don’t think there have been any reported injuries from the volcano, which is continuing to erupt.
