The abandoned Chaiten town

Chaiten town lying at the foot of the volcano that erupted early May after thousands of years, is now wrecked completely and abandoned by its inhabitants. This is one of the most modern day examples of volcanic devastation. Do you recall the TV serial ‘The Last Days of Pompeii’. The prosperous Roman city ‘Pompeii’ was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Experts believe that the Chilean volcano could continue to erupt for months or even years.
