A state of emergency has been called after the Calbuco volcano has erupted in the Southern region of Chile. Erupting for the first time in 42 years a thick plume of ash and smoke are covering several kilometers of the sky. A 20 kilometer radius has been evacuated with over 4,000 people leaving the area.
Flights were canceled from the Chilean city of Puerto Montt, and Bariloche in Argentina, popular destinations for domestic and international tourists due to the presence of volcanic ash that can potentially damage an aircraft and make flying dangerous.
Cain is generating reports for travelers in Chile and Argentina to determine who may be impacted by this event and will be reaching out to those travelers to advise and re-accommodate if necessary.
