Chilean authorities on Sunday issued a red alert -- the most severe in their warning system -- that the Copahue Volcano, high in the Andes mountains on the border with Argentina, might be poised for a significant eruption.
In a statement, Chile's Geological and Mining Service stressed that no mandatory evacuations have been ordered around the remote volcano, which lies about 280 kilometers southeast (175 miles) of Concepcion, though the closest roads to it are in Argentina.
Even though the seismic activity suggests a minor eruption, the agency decided to raise the alert level because it could not rule out a major eruption. The service warned specifically about potentially dangerous mudslides within a 15-kilometer (9.3-mile) radius of the crater.

World domination is their goal. Where is James Bond when we need him?
Seriesly, I pray that the people near the volcano are able to evacuate quickly enough to prevent great loss of lives.
At first I thought this was about Obama’s re-election. THen I read the rest of the headline.
Time to dig up Pinochet.
Protestants from Northern Ireland?
If communists were in charge it’d be a blue alert.
