Gonzalo Llamas Sebesta literally had a front seat view for the latest eruption of Chile’s Nevados de Chillán as a ski chairlift carried him up the flanks of the volcano on August 8. Chile’s 24 Horas reported on an explosion from the active volcano located in Bio Bio Province. ONEMI, the Chilean national emergency office, issued a yellow alert to communities living near the volcano complex following the eruption, which emitted a 5,000-foot column of dust and ash.
