Here are some more images of the destruction wrought by Chaitén volcano upon the town that shares its name. As with our previous post, they come from Werner Keller of the Villarrica and Llaima Volcanoes Visual Observation Project (POVI) in Chile. Many thanks to Werner for sharing this material, which is copyright © Christian Brown/El Mercurio.
There are sixteen images. To save on downloading time I’ve put all but the first image under the cut: click on ‘more’ to see all the images.
