The map shows the Calbuco volcano in southern Chile and its surroundings. The volcano erupted on April 22, 2015 for the first time in over 42 years sending a plume of ash up to an altitude of about 10 km into the sky.
A second eruption occurred seven hours later on the following morning and early reports indicate that it was on the same scale as the first one. The event triggered a Red Alert in the Los Lagos Region of Chile. Thousands of people within a 20 km radius of the volcano have been evacuated.

RapidEye satellite imagery (false colour composite NIR/Red/Green, red colour indicating vegetation) acquired on April 23, 2015 (15:47 UTC) is used as back drop.
