According to BBC News, Chile and Argentina have both raised red alerts as the Copahue Volcano, on the border of both countries, has begun to spew gas and ash. After careful monitoring over the weekend, the high seismic activity concerned authorities and revised the previous yellow alert given from Argentina to the highest level. As a result, 3,000 people have been evacuated as a preventive measure.
The volcano lies 175 miles southeast of the surf town Concepcion, known for a beach break with consistent surf. If the volcano were to explode, there would be interesting consequences to the reliable surf just miles away and have a huge impact on the surf community in these regions.
