Last Friday, the volcano began to become quite active, shooting ash into the sky and causing a lot of panic amongst the residents.

The Chile region of Patagonia appears to be in the danger zone as Navy warships were sent out to try and evacuate all remaining in that region.

The 3,280-foot volacno has been silent for thousands of years, but has since began to make quite a lot of noise, and cause major panic.

The volcano has been spitting lava, but no lava has been detected on the sides of the volcano as of yet.
