Video: Time-lapse shows the power of nature as Chilean volcano erupts

Tony Cuddihy

Check out this stunning time-lapse video of an erupting volcano in southern Chile, which shows the frightening power of nature.

The Calbuco volcano has erupted for the second time in 24 hours, having been dormant for over half a century.

Almost 5,000 people were evacuated from an area close to the tourist spot of Puerto Varas and 1,000km south of the capital Santiago.

Thankfully there have been no reports of fatalities, injuries or missing persons.
